Thanks to Joey for the beer.

Good looking porter, dark brown with over an inch of foam.

A very lactic aroma upfront, like warm milk. It takes me a while to push that aroma aside but I do pick up some coco and coffee as well. The lactic notes took me by surprise at first but they do tone down later on and the coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malts, and toffee push forward in a nice blend. There is also a malted milk aroma.

Tastes of toasted malts, light coffee, and a little butter. There's also a taste of malted milk and nutty malts.

Very smooth and easy to drink. Slightly dry and roasted finish.

Dark brown with root beer ambered highlights at the edges and bottom. Thin, light tannish cap of foam that lasts briefly before a sifting hint is left on top. Lacing sits on the glass in the forms of a some small broken strings.

Aroma is light with a warm chocolate sweetness under some smokey/burnt roastyness.

Nice firm taste of easy going cocoa flavors, mild milky chocolate sweetness, and hints of burnt black malt. The tone is weel placed and makes for a quick, pleasing taster of a porter.

Simple, firm, medium, creamy body. Nice little touches of dryish, noteably heavier roast and burntness pick up in the finish along with burnt grassy hop notes.

A very nice and fairly easy drinking porter!
