Delaware

4.14/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - dark brown, near black, creamy tan head, patching lacing

S - coffee, molasses, caramel, black malts, candied sugars

T - roasted malt, coffee, sweetness from some dark fruits like figs and dates, molasses, slight bitterness

M - medium to full bodied, some carbonation, chewy, creamy

O - Really great porter. Great combination and balance between the smell and taste from the roasted malt malts to the sweet molasses/caramel and dark fruits. Would certainly drink again,
