Pours a dark brown with a light brown head (typical of porters). Not a whole lot in the scent, but a slight malt and coffee scent.

This beer has a great balance of hop and malt flavor. Is really one of the best tastes I have had in a porter. Also, there is a small hint of coffee and/or chocolate that does overbear the good taste of porter, yet really adds to that flavor. Overall, this is one of my favorite porters. Luckily it comes from a widely distributed brewery and is relatively available compared to other porters.
