This is one of my favorite porters. Always pours with a thick tan head that lingers all the way down the glass. The roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavors are very abundant with each sip, but it is not overly sweet and off putting like many porters on the market.

This may be my favorite Porter of all-time. Poured from a single bottle into an ale glass. A beautiful, foamy, caramel head immediately billowed-up and laced all the way down the glass as I imbibed. Silky smooth on the mouthfeel and not a trace of bitterness from initial mouth contact to swallow to aftertaste. This one truly lives up to 'The Bros' rating of 99.
