16oz can. Pours dark brown with a huge fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malts, burnt and a little metal. Taste follows suit--much more like a Vienna than a porter. Goes down easy and refreshing. It’s cheap enough and looks good in the glass, but just isn’t impressive by any measure.

Six pack of 12-oz bottles in southern Tennessee. Medium bodied and rich smooth taste. Very satisfying. It's a shame we can't get this at home in Texas.

Thanks to my parents for bringing this back from the States. Pours a brown colour with a frothy beige head and a little lacing. Roasted malt scent with some notes of dark fruits and other fruity yeast. The taste is milder with the dark fruits, burnt malts and yeast. Mild bitterness in the finish. A decent macro brew that mixes a porter and a premium lager.

Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. Tan head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Caramel aromas. Sweet caramel and sour cardboard upfront turning to dry, smoky chocolate in the medium length finish.

"this is a pretty good go-to beer if the place you’re at doesn’t have anything you REALLY like. it’s light-medium bodied, a little more robust flavor than expected, with a light, roasted, slightly dry finish. ok."

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee and light chocolate from the malts, some very light bitterness, and some bread/dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best of the style, but decent considering the price.
