A- very dark brown, looks more like a stout. literally no head at all and barely any lacing. very strange, could have been an off batch.

S- loads of chocolate and coffee. roasted malts and hops are secondary, but still linger. some sugary sweetness and alcohol are also present. complex and multi-layered.

T- roasted malts and hops are up front. some chocolate and coffee flavors balance the flavor a little. black patent malt is dominant in the after taste.

O- a weird beer. i say that, because the appearance and consistency were strange, but it's still a joy to drink. a nice, assertive porter.

Pours an opaque, brown-black beer with a brown sugar-colored froth that stays put. It has an aroma of roasty malts, caramel or brown sugar and zesty hops. It has a very American smell. It’s pretty full bodied and soft. It vanishes from the mouth quickly and leaves the tongue a bit scratchy. It has flavors of dark malt, roastiness and maybe chocolate. A sort of lemon peel bitterness and some sort of grass or hay and spice seem to come from the hops. It’s balanced perfectly. It’s bold and delicious. This shows everyone what a porter is all about
