12 oz.

Pours opaque black with a light tan film for a head.

Smells of roasted coffee and hazelnut with some vanilla and brown sugar. Also a hint of rich malt like you get from wort.

Coffee, cocoa, hazelnut, and light fresh hop, not really that bitter, although there is a nutty bitterness that is separate from that.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very unique porter to me, very different from most porters that I've had. For that reason alone I'm inclined to like it, and it's pretty good outside of that as well. Worth trying for sure, and a memorable experience.

Pours a light brown and black in the glass, a thin layer of parchment colored foam on the surface that dwindles quickly, leaving behind a sudsy ring around the edge and sticking drippy lacing.

Mellow chocolatey aroma, light esters when swirled.

Chocolate covered banana, dark chocolate, ashy roast. Dry charred bitterness in the aftertaste. Feel is a little thin, but it has plenty of flavor. Lingering flavors of roastiness last a long time. A nice drinkable Porter.

Thanks to Howard for this one!
