This was HEAVY. A meal on its own. I love and have had many porters, but this one seemed denser than normal. Rich chocolate and Carmel notes. I will say, the label had me slightly confused. The "J" kind of looks like an 'S", and I'm genuinely uncomfortable drinking something called "Black Sack." Ami alone in this?!

A - Black body, white head really pops in contrast. Low lacing.
S - Cocoa, coffee. Sweet chocolate, not really any roastiness.
T - Chocolate, dark malts, coffee. Really well balanced.
M - Medium/thick body. Feels like it could be a stout. Coats the palate. Coffee bitterness lingers.
O - One of the better porters I've had in a while. My favorite character is the smoothness of the body.
