Great Porter...WITH HOPS.... Pours a dense black color, no light gets through. Big tan head with a hard pour. Good head retention and lacing.
Impressive aroma. Roasted malts...chocolate malt ahd piney hops!!!

Tastes great as well. The roasted malt and chocolate are dominant, but the hops provide a nice (and potent) balance. The overall mix is great.

This is a rich, smooth porter with a following resinous/strong piney hops presence.

A very good Porter for any occasion.

A - Pours a very dark brown, can't see through it. Light tan head.

S - Loads of roasted malts, burnt coffee and dark chocolate. Some piney hops as well.

T - Typical hopped up fashion with 3F. Piney hops, coffee grounds, smokeyness and leather.

M - Medium body & carbonation. Well done.

O - Great Christmas brew that reminds you of the smell of the season.
