Misc.: Packaged on April 3, 2014
Poured an almost pitch black color with two fingers of khaki-tan head, which settled along nicely on the top. Very good amount of spiderweb, layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Fantastic retention on the top of the glass all the way down.
Smelled caramel espresso malts. Also toffee, roasty nuts, buttery malts, dark chocolate, caramel fudge and faint coffee beans.
Tasted dark chocolate, crayon, smoky fire, almost ashtray, bitter coffee notes, roasty nutty malts, slight butter malts and a bit of burnt toast.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
A pretty good porter overall. Not my favorite, but probably better than most. I’d have it again.
