Head retains alright atop a black body.

Very slight peppermint, hoppy.

Hoppy, clean, floral with a notable chocolate, won't be mistaken for a black IPA. Dried out from the mexican sugar. Not as superlativey as I expected.

Body's real light, been a while since I had a porter and not a stout.

From a 12 oz bottle with another great FFF label.

Excellent aroma from this opaque, very dark red-brown ale.

Good, smooth feel.
