Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2013
From a growler, same day as fill. A thin tan head on a dark brown body. The aroma is wonderful: chocolate and roasted malt in perfect balance. The taste is on the light side: roasted and chocolate malt. What’s there is good though. The texture is lighter bodied with moderate carbonation. A good porter, worth drinking a few of for sure.
