APPEARANCE: Very dark brown. Almost opaque, but hints of amber around the edge of the glass.
HEAD: Thin, beige head, but it did last quite awhile.
LACING: Decent lacing. Held high on the glass, but spotty.
NOSE: Sweet, but subdued. Coffee, roasted nuts, and a little cocoa powder. Not much else.
TASTE: Sweet. Milk chocolate. Weak coffee. Some roasted malts and toasted oak. Fairly insipid.
MOUTHFEEL: Thinner than a porter should be. Watered-down and syrupy.
DRINKABILITY: OK. Drinks lighter than the style, but not interesting enough to go back for more than a couple.
RATING: 2 Hops
