A classic porter, dark and full of roasted malt flavor. Chocolate notes are well balanced by a slight bitterness.

On tap at the brewpub in Media, PA.
Pours with a red-brown body that has excllent clarity and highlights. Minimal head yet decent lacing.
Very good bitter-sweet balance. No sour or other off notes. Light smoke in the finish and aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation.

From 12/23/14 notes. Had on tap at the new location in Ardmore, PA. 4 oz. pour as part of a sampler.

Pours a deep brown, almost black color, with one inch of tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

Nose is awesome, sweet milk chocolate, roasted malts, bakers chocolate, vanilla, cream, toasted malts. Taste is a little more bitter, not as flavorful as the nose. Light body, a bit too thin, low to moderate carbonation evident.

Overall a nice porter with a great nose. A bit thin and the taste has more bitter dark chocolate, but would try it again.

I'm having a hard time remembering this beer, since it's been a few years, but I do remember it having a pretty robust flavor and a rich color. I also remember enjoying it, so that's good too.
