Poured black with a small fine bubble head. Nose of dark roasted malts, coffee beans, and a little hops. The taste follows the nose nicely with a very heavy roasted expresso experience. It's a full body beer, high carbonation, very smooth. This is a straight forward coffee-based porter. Very well crafted. A top tier porter. Certainly one to keep in the fridge. Great for a cold day or a perfect hangover beer.
