A- Poured into a porter glass. Ebony black - no light will penetrate. Rapid 1/2 inch head quickly fading to lace and edging.

S- Espresso, dark chocolate, malt.

T- Great! lightly sweet very expensive black coffee. Medium dark chocolate and mild vanilla.

M- Medium carbonation dissipates rapidly with a medium mouth feel. Smooth finish hiding alcohol well.

O- I like many beers but this is one of my favorites. Excellent coffee porter - an easy two glass beer at one sitting. Goes well with light desert fair but will remain the star of the palate show. I will seek it out again.
