Profiled by Ken Carman for professorgoodales.net
Nice pillow head with tad rock: white. Nice garnet highlights, SRM about 28. Nice malt nose: dark malts with a slight sweet tang. Body light for Porter. Some Black Patent-like sense: slight, in mouthfeel. Hops: slight bitter not much else. Taste: malt with some bitter but kind of light for a Porter. I assume Robust, and definitely not a Brown. A Brown Porter would still be maltier and often a bit sweeter than this slight hint. Certainly no Black Patent sense.
This really needs more complex malt profile and heavier body. More like a Brown Ale with Black Patent. A beer looking for a style.
