Pours total black with a rocky tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Chunks of foam cling to the glass. Intense fresh roasted barley and dark chocolate in the nose, with piney hops and malt sweetness in the back. The taste immense chocolate and roastiness. Dark cocoa mixes with milk chocolate and coffee notes. Citrusy, piney hop flavors add more complexity to the mix. Roasted malt bitterness mixes with the solid hop bitterness tying everything down. The finish is thick and full bodied with a textured, creamy carbonation.

A benchmark example of an An American Porter. Rich, roasty, complex. Good hop presence too. A must try.
