Pours a thin head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate, nice.
The taste is a great balance of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee with a a slight bitterness.
The texture is thick with lower carbonation.
A superb porter.

This porter almost had it all with great taste, balance and hints of chocolate, caramel, coffee. The color was deep and alluring with a slight foam on top. My only issue with this porter was it was just a shade on the thin side for body. This was not enough to ruin the beer for me as I would drink it again, but just a bit unexpected.
