Notes 12/21/2015- Kegged for 2 weeks now. This beer is growing on me slightly. It was very bland when first kegged but had matured a bit recently. It is a very basic porter and nothing more. Fits style guidelines and all but lacks any umph to make it dynamic. Would play with the adjuncts a bit before brewing again.
