Deep black color with a one finger caramel head with low retention but leaving a constant ring.
Nice aroma with lots of dark chocolate and roasted coffee.
Bold and rich flavor of coffee, like the real thing. Notes of roasted and smoked malts and earthy hops. Hints of pine, licorice and dark chocolate. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a prolonged flavor of roasted and burnt malt and its earthy hops.
Full and thick body with low carbonation and a velvet sensation.
Incredibly balanced beer that is full of character with precise and assertive notes. Highly recommended for who digs dark beers. Let it warm up to fully enjoy this beauty.
Ps. it seems that an American Porter is almost equivalent to a Foreign Stout.
