A very complex porter with chocolate, light astringent black malts, earth, touch of smoke and a complementary bitterness (Chinook & German Northern Brewer hops).

Extremely drinkable for the amount of complexities going on.

Impressive and a treat to drink, malty with dark fruity undertones. An all around drinkable porter packed with flavour. Dark and a bit heady with a wafting aroma of dark malts and slight hop.

22oz into a pint

A - Pours a dark brown with amber highlights. Light head, almost non-existant. Mocha colored.

S - A nice bittersweet chocolate nose. Some yeast in the background. Not much for hops.

T - Starts off smooth, velvety and with a nice layer of chocolate. Mid-stream gets some nuttiness flavors. Some bitterness in the finish, and just a hint of some astringency. On the sweeter side but not bad.

M - Moderate body and light carbonation. Comes off a bit thin. A little bit clingy in the after taste, but not sticky.

O/D - A nice and easy drinking porter. A great session porter I would think . Nice finisher beer.
