3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Fayetteville, AR. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy with some chocolates, roasts, and dark fruits. Flavor is similar. Roasty and grainy with a balanced chocolate malt backing and touches of dark fruits. Finishes dry with a light, earthy bitterness and balanced sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a decent porter. Balanced, easy drinking, and enjoyable.
