Pours a very dark brown. Dark garnet highlights throughout the glass. Nice tan head and sheeting down the glass.
Sweet aromas. Kind of smells like a chocolate donut. Some aromas of dark chocolate and very light coffee.
The flavors are pretty sweet too. Sweetened dark chocolate and coffee. Honey flavor is definitely present. Very light hop presence giving a little bitter counterpoint to the sweetness.
Medium bodied. A little syrupy, but not cloying at all.
I generally prefer porters to stouts because of the generally less roasty flavors and this is no exception. Works very well as a dessert beer or even just a dessert in itself.
