Pours opaque black with a small, fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is roasty, milk chocolate, coffee and some hints of plum. Medium, effervescent mouthfeel, nice body for the size of the beer. Taste is roasty, bitter chocolate, a little caramel and a hint of licorice, not as sweet as the smell would suggest. Fairly dry on the finish for a sweet stout (basing the style of the beer on the brewer's description, which identifies the beer as a sweet stout, as opposed to its name). Very solid beer and eminently sessionable.

my second beer from wiley roots. nice to see these guys doing well. i think they have a neat operation going, and the beer is very good. this porter has a lot of chocolate malt and proper dark chocolate going on in it, and it never ever gets sweet, which i think is its best feature. pale dark brown, a little cloudy, but nice and heady and rich looking. the nose is dry cocoa and roasted barley, not bitter at all, and well refined. the flavor shows quite a but of straight up chocolate, its dark and semisweet, with no leftover sugar. the base porter i think is also a success, fuller bodied but easy drinking and showing a lot of the barley dark roast in the finish where hops would be in other styles. there is maybe a little more of a yeast profile to this beer than i think the style calls for, but i dont mid it here, and it makes this distinct. not sure if there is actually chocolate in here or not, but it conveys that very well. a nice chalky dry texture to it, which sounds odd, but fits the flavor profiles beautifully. i have to get up there and visit this place.
