Brown, earthly, hint of deep red, foam lighter, hazelnut cream color. Heavy, overwhelming, coffee grains, malt, caramel, although only 5.6 alc, rightfully designated as extra strong. Citrus, roasted nut cortex and some smoke in aftertaste. As it is written on bottle, beer for hard working men and woman. You can't make mistake with steaks.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured an incredibly deep, clear brown. Light barely gets through. The head is thick and dense, with great retention and lacing. The aroma is a little light, a little roasted malt and earthy. The taste, though, brings more with increased depth in the roasted malt. It's not ridiculously complex but it is really good. There's a nice weight to the body and a nice finish. A really good straightforward porter.
