Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark chestnut-black coloring with a foamy, light, low profile, tan head. Nose of coffee, cream, and chocolate. Smells great. Subtle aromas, but very inviting. Flavors are more chocolate forward, bitter and roasted, with some cream highlights. The body is smooth and slightly dry. The aftertaste is cream and coffee, almost mocha. Slick, slightly dry finish, with a subtle bitter linger. Very drinkable. Good brew.

Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Dark brown body(almost black) with an expresso head. Decent lacing and retention.

S: Coffee and smoked malts in the nose.

T: Taste follows the nose for the most part. Theres a fair amount of hop bitterness.

M: Bitter aftertaste with a thinner body then I would prefer. Carbonation is alright.

O: Its not bad, but its not great either. There are better dark beer options for this price range.

A fluffy caramel head rests on top of an onix-colored body. I spilled a little onto my hands, and they now smell like Mexican hot chocolate. Cinnamon, chocolate malts, maple syrup, and a touch of coffee liquor are all present in the nose. The full taste is packed with bitter chocolate and coffee with a touch of vanilla and anise seed. Lacings grace the side of the glass like spider webs. I will grant that this is a solid porter.
