Enjoyed from a bomber in a pint glass, this fine porter pours a deep dark brownish black with ruby outlines and a huge rocky tan head that lingers long leaving nice lacing. Nose of dark bitter chocolate, bittering hops, light smoke, and deeply roasted malts. Flavors are dark chocolate to the front and sides, with a firm bitter hops balance in the back and aftertaste with a touch of light smoked malts rounding this beast out. Excellent carbonation and smooth mouth feel makes this one a fantastic porter to contend with.
Another winner from Ballast Point.
