Thin bodied porter. Dark brown. The chocolate was there, decently sweet. Overall, it was too thin to be great, but still not bad and drinkable.

This beer was very disappointing, it was at most average the smell of chocolate and malts were well mixed. However it poured and the the khaki colored head dissipated almost instantly, then the body was too thin and the tastes were not very clean.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The complex aroma was roasted malt dark malt and woody. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The creamy flavor contained notes of mildly vinous wood brown malt and dark malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a coffee brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has light dark grains up front with a bit of earthiness and a good amount of dark chocolate. Flavor has a nice dark chocolate note that combines with a bit of roasted malts.
