Pours opaque black with a small wispy tan head.
Aroma consists of roasted malts, chocolate and strangely, but pleasantly citrus.
Citrus doesn't come through in the flavor as much. Maybe just a tinge of it up front. The roasted malts are the all star here. Loads of bitter creamy chocolate dominate with some coffee as well. Finishes pretty bitter and dry.
Pretty good creaminess especially once it warmed a bit. Carbonation levels are average.
I look forward to this one every year. Not my favorite porter, but a solid example of the style and lack of bottle dating on this one doesn't make me wary like the IPAs.
