22 oz bomber to a shaker glass.
A - Very deep red to black. Cloudy under intense light. 3/4 inch deep tan rocky head. Carbonation appears appropriate for style.
S - Spiked German chocolate cake. Appetizing.
T - Initial carbonation bite at low temperatures dissipates with warming. Front vanilla notes with an almost raspberry like background. Milk chocolate, tobacco and roasted grain on the back end with coffee-like bitterness. A very subtle lactic sourness barely makes its presence known. Finish is remarkably dry. No hop presence noticed at any time.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation deissipating over time. A little less carbonation would be welcome.
O - A very good to great porter. The tobacco notes at the end compliment the richness of the later flavors. Highly recommended.
