Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass
From: Whole Foods in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: $2.59
Purchased: May 15, 2014
Consumed: May 16, 2014
Misc.: Bottled April 25, 2014

Poured an almost pitch black color with 1-to-2 fingers of bubbly, tan head. Good layered, foamy, spiderweb lacing along the sides of the glass. Average retention.

Smelled dark chocolate fudge, smoky woodfire, dark roasted nuts, crayon, caramel, toffee, chocolate and some dark bitter coffee malts.

Tasted better than the smell, but still pretty similar. Got dark chocolate, fudge, smoky fire, crayon, toffee, rich, smoky roasted nuts, caramel and smooth coffee notes.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. Was great all the way down.

A very good porter. This one grew on me as it went down. I might of underrated this a bit.
