Richer & more robust then Eddy Fitz, a tad more bitter too & slightly less balanced. Other then that, pretty damn close. High praise indeed!

A - Pours an extremely dark brown, almost tar colored, nice small tan head, sticks to the glass very nicely.

S - Getting lots of roasted, toasty malts, some coffee, slight hint of baker's chocolate, some smokiness.

T - Out of this world good, creamy chocolate and coffee with the coffee more pronounced on the finish, smoky and toasty malts.

O - One of my favorite porters, a very sessionable beer as well
