This brew pours a heavy black with moderate carbonation and coffee foam colored head that fades rather quickly. The smell is rich without being overwhelming; it smells of chocolate and bitter hops with dark fruits and just a bit of mellow coffee notes. All of this is balanced well in the nose.

The taste is smooth and creamy with a slightly bitter hop edge at the end of the profile. Overall the chocolate is both sweet and bitter chocolate. The roasted coffee flavor shows up more in the flavor but is never harsh or abrasive, which is nice. The dark fruit flavor shows up under all of this and towards the back of the profile, its taste like berry preserves and plums. Overall a really robust and full porter with a tasty balance of the traits within this style. A little heavy on the mouth feel so the drinkability lacks a bit but not because of the flavor.
