Bitter in the front, smooth and slightly chewy in the back.

I love the surprisingly bold addition of hops that bucket balances the smooth chocolate base.

Good when its cold but better as it warms up

Chocolatey and smooth as heck.

Can't go wrong with a 6 pack of this in your fridge.

A- Dark brown to black color with thin tan head with nice lacing

S-Very clean and malty smelling almost like a lager, hints of dark roasted malts

T-Cacao, dark chocolate malt flavors up front balanced by a modest hop bitterness

M-Full bodied, medium carbontation, very satiating

O-Would be definitely one of my top picks for a beer to sustain oneself with over a long cold winter, rich and malty without being cloying.

Pours nice and thick with a dark cream colored head.

Smells like coffee and molasses sweetness bundled into one nice package

Taste is pretty strong for a porter. For an american porter it is pretty heavy and thick. It is a nice taste though, much like the smell. Perhaps with a touch of chocolate bitterness and earthy hops not present in the smell.

Overall, a strange porter. It is very thick and very flavorful. Not something I could have more than one of, which is disappointing for the style. This is more like an american stout in my opinion.
