Poured a dark mahogany color, almost pitch black, with three fingers of tan frothy head. Good layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled dark toffee, caramel, roasted nuts, dark chocolate, fudge, dark cocoa and espresso.

Tasted similar to the nose. Roasted nuts, bitter coffee notes, darker chocolate, espresso, toffee and caramel.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

A decent porter overall. Not too bad.
