Dark, dark brown with some feint ruby red highlights. Nice pour, but head is minimal with some, but very little lacing.
Lots of chocolate and nuts in the aroma, with a little of the advertised herbs.
Nice, mild hoppy upfront with a lovely body and mouthfeel.
Finish is more bitter and dry than I was expecting, in fact more dry stout-like.
Very nice beer, but lacks the creaminess I often seek in my porters. Enjoyable all the same.
