P- Thanks to my buddy Todd for this brew.

A- motor oil black with a one finger tan head that is foamy and average lacing.

S- oooo a smoked coffee and chocolate type of nose with a nutty malt on the back end.

F- roasted coffee flavor with hints of chocolate that complement each other nicely.

M- creamy medium bodied porter that has a nice smokey flavor to it.

O- I am not a porter person by any means but this is the best porter I have ever had. I actually enjoyed it.

Well balanced porter. Dark. Smokey & Roasted coffee flavor, with hint of chocolate. Smooth and creamy, with a hint of bitterness. Overall very good.

Smoked chocolate, not bad and smells great, kinda heavy on the tongue.
