New American 1789 Porter

This 6.7% ABV porter is from New American Brewing of Ankeny, Iowa. 

The beer pours mahogany, black to very dark brown. There is about an inch of tan head. The aroma is dark roasted malt, with some dark chocolate, light anise, light char. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes, chocolate, char, with a bit of a tang, and some dark fruits. The beer drinks smooth, with a tingling carbonation just shy of starting to be fizzy. There is a light bitterness on the finish. This has great flavors, wish it  had just a touch more fullness to its body.
