Poured on-tap and served in a chalice, the beer is a dark brown to black coloring with a tall, frothy, dense, tan head that isn't going anywhere. Aromas of dry roast coffee, chocolate, and a touch of smoke. Slightly earthy, too. Flavors are dry and roasty, with a chocolate-mocha blending, and a creamy chocolate blend at the end of the palate. Dry and slightly creamy in mouth, with a dry, clean finish. Very solid porter.

Appearance is black with a tan head and nice lacing.

Nose is an almost-dusty sweet malt.

Taste is nutty; almost with a dry, chicory quality. The malt is sweet.

Mouthfeel is dry, but not overly so. There is plenty to find refreshing here. Carbonation is mild and it has a clean finish.

Overall, this is a unique, dry porter.
