Half finger head on a near jet black body and excellent lacing. Aroma consists of dark chocolate, roasted malts, espresso and earthy hops. The flavor follows this perfectly which each of those same notes echoed in the flavor. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This is a very nicely flavorful porter and may be one of their better brews.

Served in a standard shaker pint glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.
Appearance: As served the beer is a dark brown, almost black, with a ½” head of light tan foam. The lacing coats the side of the glass and sipping leaves some lacing for much of the beer.
Smell: The aroma is full of chocolate with traces of coffee and a hint of some sort of dark fruitiness.
Taste: Flavor lightly sweet chocolate or cocoa with touch of dark fruitiness. The hops are mostly citric and provide a nice light counterbalance to the sweetness.
Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is medium bodied and has some enjoyable prickly carbonation. The finish is medium to long and starts with a touch of the chocolate sweetness that slides into a crisp, almost citric bitterness that spreads throughout the mouth and complements the faint taste of roast to the end.
Drinkability and Overall Impression: Definitely a beer for repeated sipping as one chats with friends. In addition the 2nd went very well with the salad and soup chosen for dinner. My overall impression is that this is an excellent, well made porter well suited to be one of the house standards for the chain. I’ll certainly be revisiting this one again and can see why it has won a few medals.
