Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a black color with a creamy colored thin foamy head that died off at a decent pace. Semi-foamy thin lace. The aroma took in portions of milk and dark chocolate over some subtle vanilla notes and then graces the underneath with a light roasty, some char and coffee beans. The flavor slightly brings together the previously mentioned aromas to blend decently between the roast and the sweet. Crisp sweet roasted aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderately carbonated, subtle roasty nuances slide over my tongue nicely in a nice semi-smooth wet sort of way. Overall, nicely done porter somewhat leaning to the English side. I could come back to this.
