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.

Draft at Stubbies in Gaineville. Pours black with small kahki head. Smells like roasted coffee, spicy earthiness and more coffee. Smooth velvety mouthfeel. Lots of coffee up front, bit of malt sweetness in the middle, ending with more coffee. Good porter, slightly thin but nicely robust flavors melding together with the coffee and roast.
