Pours absolutely jet black with a dark tan, small head that disappears quickly. Gentle aggitation reproduces the head with some effervesence just like a coke. In fact the whole appearance is *exactly* like a coke!
All the characteristics of a fine Porter, with some extra coffee/chocolate bitterness thrown in at the end for good measure. I prefer a little smoother edge to my Porters, but I think my taste is a little unfaithful to the style and this beer is much closer to where they generally should be.
Got a good coating on the teeth and tongue in the mouthfeel department.
Glad to see innovative stuff from the brewery with the Brewmaster series. Hope to see some other fine examples in the near future.
