A: Extremely dark beer, light barely passes through, thick head (coffee w/ cream color) that falls slowly.
S: Rich scent of coffee and vanilla. Slight hints of cocoa and dark chocolate.
T: Perfectly balanced notes of bitter and sweet coffee. Vanilla adds a hint of sweetness for additional complexity.
M: Medium body, perfect carbonation and a smooth.
D: Possibly the best porter I have ever had. Highly recommended.

This poured the color of midnight at a bottom of a well, with an espresso-crema cap of foam.
The aroma held layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malts, a hint of vanilla. It’s a sipper, with a smoothly warming flavor of a sweetly bitter espresso with cacao and vanilla, and just a touch of booziness at the end. This is a big beer but so enjoyable!
Serving type: on-tap
