SN3O0431

Clarity: Smoky but very clean
Color: Dark brown
Foam: Fairly long head. Fine bubbles. Milk coffee color
Aroma: Solid. Bread, caramel
Taste: Well rounded, deep and rich attack. very refreshing for a porter.
Lighter than expected.
Dry. Caramel, bread.
Pleasantly lingers on with a drier accent, more caramel and coffee beans.

Overall: A very satisfying brew, but quite elegant and light for a porter.
Chilled, it makes for a superlative summer or evening drink.
Although it marries well with food, one can best appreciate it on its own!
