Holiday Porter, always one of my favorites during the holidays with such a festive appearance.
Body is just shy of pitch black with a nice tan head a bit more than a finger thick. Head quickly faded but left a decent lace behind.
Aroma is subtle on the roasted notes but provides a notable chocolaty sweetness. Rather hoppy for a porter with a bit of floral hops detected.
Taste and mouthfeel is bitter coffee with puckering astringency offset by a notable chocolate sweetness. Hops also help to offset the strong roasted flavors but overall a nice porter. Rather light but plenty smooth.
