A: Deep amber with a faint tint of ruby, then a precious stone like shine. Delicate bubbles in dark tan.
S: Brown sugar, little coffee.
T: None of the sweetness suggested in the nose. And then the next surprise is the dryness. Dark fruit but not typical sweet profile. Thick mouthfeel is balanced by the small bubble carbonation. There a kind of bitterness but I couldn't nail the potential sources.
O: Like this brew. Not a typical Porter in any way, but I'm know that's where the brewers were headed. My fav part is the balanced of the dryness, low sweetness, and complex background flavor notes. Makes me want to find more beers from this place.
