From a growler served in a shaker glass. Very dark brown with a thin khaki head. Smells of dark fruits, tobacco, and bread. The flavor is similar with a touch of toffee. Medium-low carbonation with a slightly astringent texture. Very nice porter that differs from the norm.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This porter has roughly foaming and partially renewable foam. It emits a powerful and delicious aroma of roasted malt with distinct coffee notes. The taste is initially a little water, but quickly reveals the coffee and English licorice on a malty background of roasted character. Not so many special qualities of this porter, only one type of right and good porter who has just what such a one must have
