Thanks alelover!

Considerably darker than most standard porters I can think of. A nice khaki head swells to about a half finger before settling to form a thin cap that laces well.

Definite coffee aromas with milk chocolate and a touch of caramel. The coffee contribution takes a bittersweet direction like espresso or fresh oily beans. I like it. The coffee profile alone keeps me interested.

It's a bit more multidimensional on the palate... sort of a caramelized cane sugar thing going on... like a macchiato or something. Nice... well-executed traditional porter flavor profile with the addition of that deep, silky coffee.

Hoppin' Frog doesn't always impress but this one is hitting the spot.
