3.75/5 rDev -5.3%
Color- black walnut. Slight head tinted mocha.
Aroma of coffee, hops and dark chocolate.
Taste- Mildly hoppy but good roasted malt body with hints of coffee finishing with a mild charcoal note. A hop-head might like this porter but a porter lover would like this too. Good blend of traditional and hop-head.
Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). tasted Jan. 2013.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation
Overall: This is a good example of what sets the American Porter apart from the English Porter. Good beer.
