Pours a light black with a tan head that lingers and laces.
Smells of chocolate, coffee, sweet caramel malt along with some spicy/earthy hops...almost a hint of wood or oak.
Taste is up front coffee and chocolate that goes into a more astringent, coffee middle with a hint of grapefruit hop character, before ending on a chocolate finish that lingers along with toasted bread notes and, again, some oak/wood. Really nice flavor and what I think of when I think of the style.
Medium to lighter body with medium to low carbonation and no alcohol character.
Damned fine porter that has a dark chocolate and coffee character. It is also highly drinkable...a real winner.
