Zombie Monkie pours a deep, dark brown that lets almost zero light through. A dark tan head dissipates fairly fast and leaves a little spotty lacing.
The aroma is quite nice with dark chocolate, raisin and dark bread and, perhaps, just a hint of acidic citrus?
The taste is very good. Lots of bitter chocolate and a little roast coffee with underlying notes of raisin and prune. There is a nice bittering and drying finish as well as a little bit of acidity (from the hops?) that leaves a nice tingle on the tongue.
The mouthfeel is a little weak. It's medium and a little creamy but with a little more substance, this would be a world-class porter.
Overall, a really good beer that I'll buy again. I like the layers of flavor. And, what a great can!
