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.
