Great full flavored porter. Nice roasted malty flavor. Tasteful without an overbearing smokiness.

Poured into tumbler out of 12oz. Bottle.
A: black as a moonless night. 1/4" caramel colored head quickly dissipates to leave nice lacing for a porter.
S: roasted malt and hops, w/ a caramel tinge.
T: follows the nose with notes of dark roast coffee and a slight bitter acridness on the swallow. Alcohol is COMPLETELY hidden!
F: initially thick but transitions to a lighter clean aftertaste I can only attribute to the masterful application of the hops...wonderful!
O: A top notch porter second to Eddy Fitz ONLY, IMO. More "Stouty" as well, but that's fine 'cause I LOVE the Stouts too!!!
