Pours a deep black into a pint glass with an inch mocha head that lingers.
Deep chocolate, vanilla and coffee on the nose, some raisins too.
Smooth in the palate, with the chocolate/coffee notes coming in after the subtle hop kick.
Very balanced, very drinkable beer.
Excellent porter, highly recommended. Great session brew.
