Pours jet black with an inch of coffee-and-cream head, pretty decent retention.
Smells of roasted coffee, smokey flavors, caramel and vanilla.
Tastes bitterly smokey with roasted coffee at the forefront, followed by hints of vanilla and caramel.
Feels full and creamy with smooth carbonation on the back of the tongue.
Delicious, avoids the sometimes too-acidic flavor of some coffee porters and remains smooth and mellow. The smoked notes are a nice touch. Hides its abv pretty well though there may be a hint of warmth at the end. All in all, a really enjoyable brew.
