4/5  rDev -5.9%

A- Black body with a small tan head that leaves nice lacing.

S- Tons of fresh roasty chocolate malts and coffee, more on the bittersweet chocolate side of things. Some smoke.

T- Dark black bitter chocolate with some acidic roasty coffee some light hops give support to the coffee bitterness. Hints of milk chocolate sweetness close to the finish.

M- As heavy as this is on taste there is a light airy feel to this. Moderate to high carbonation.

O- Top notch porter, worth going a little out of your way for this. Very solid all around hits all the spots a porter should.
