Pours a deep brown, almost black with almost no head. Aromas is coffee, caramel and notes of citrus. Taste is very strong coffee but is just perfect as it is. Maybe a little hint of chocolate. Very smooth with almost no carbonation. A great porter with great depth.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, rich dark brown almost black with a short brown head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: caramel, toffee, light roasted coffee, toast, malt

T: toasty malt, sweeter but not syrupy, big malt flavor with a slight hop bitterness towards the end

M: creamy with nice body

O: a really good beer that focuses on the flavor of toasted malt without having a burnt character
