Thanks to BEERchitect for the chance to try this one. 12 oz single from Lexington, KY, USA.
Nice looking pour with the dark brown body, red highlights and an impressive pitted, rocky head about half an inch deep with plenty of lacing. Looks inviting and well put together.
Typical mild, burned malts in the nose, nothing out of the ordinary. Thinnish mouthfeel (I like a creamy porter) with a lack of outstanding characteristics all around. A rather exaggerated bitterness in the finish too. Low carbonation (good), but a blandness that was just “blah” (bad).
Plenty to make me want to try this on tap, but not much to make me come back to the bottle. A good looking, if somewhat average porter that was not offensive but equally not especially impressive.
