They label this a "dark brown ale" though at just over 6% alcohol and from my notes, I’d classify this a porter, myself.
Appearance: Murky, very dark brown with ruby red tints at the light. Nice thick light brown head… a bit rocky.
Smell: Cocoa powder and freshly ground light roast coffee. Some bitter, roasted barley in the nose, too.
Taste: Roasted and chocolate malts, slightly dry and a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Reminds me of a cocoa-laden porter more than a "dark brown ale" as the bottle says… soft and a bit astringent.
Mouthfeel: Soft, smooth, creamy and a dry finish. A little light of medium-bodied; soft water character.
Overall: Definitely has "porter" written all over this for me. I think it would be better on tap; the bottled version isn’t bad but this seems to be a beer that begs for cask conditioning.
