On tap. perfect 3 finger head. Robust and smooth. Has the company ever brewed a less than exceptional beer?

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Black, no transparency and almost no head and no lacing

S: Sweet, smoky maltiness. After warming up, I get more chocolate

T: Surprisingly has a hop bitterness I taste right away. Malty, chocolate in he middle with a hint of smokiness and finishes with a coffee taste and decent hop profile.

M: mild carbonation with a dry finish

O: Great porter, love the hops throughout. Letting it warm up released more chocolate and coffee notes.
