Rich black porter with a unique blend of chocolate, coffee, roasted and nutty flavors. Brewed with cocoa powder and conditioned with cacao nibs from Taza Chocolate. Bold flavors from the cacao nibs and black malts are balanced with a special blend of pale malts, oats and wheat to produce a lush and lingering mouthfeel.

Slumbrew Porter Square Porter has a thin, beige head, a very dark, almost black, brown appearance, and slight lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of chocolate, milk, burnt malt, and a bit of acidic. Taste is of sugar, milk, chocolate, acidic bitterness, char, and dark-roasted malt. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy and velvety, and Slumbrew Porter Square Porter finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and not at all alcohilic.

12 oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a thin white head that is gonna quickly. Very little lacing.

Aroma: Smells of coffee, chocolate, dark malt, and roastiness.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, with dark roasted coffee dominating. Also some nice bitter chocolate on the finish. Alcohol not noticeable. Minimal hop bite.

Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth with a good thickness.

Overall: Good Porter named after a good neighborhood. Tasty and somewhat desert-like with noticeable chocolate overtones. Wouldn't mind trying this on draft some time.
