Poured from 12 oz. bottle to pint glass
A - Rick dark cocoa-colored body with a foamy latte head.
S - Ridiculously roasty - tobacco, molasses, and espresso. Just a hint of ripe fruit esters.
T - The roasted malt notes are immediate and enveloping - think a decadent dark double chocolate chip cookie. A touch of dark roast coffee in there, too. The finish has a dash of piney bitterness from the hops and some fruity esters.
M - Velvety and creamy, cut a bit thin feeling on the finish. The carbonation is lively but not overwhelming.
O - A fantastic porter. The best New England example of an American-style porter I have had to date. Founders Porter and Deschutes Black Butte probably are a hair better, but damn, if this isn't a great beer.
