Served in a snifter.

This brew has a creamy, off-white head two fingers thick. Pitch-black in body. 4.25

Dark roasted malt on the nose with some burnt toast, caramel and vanilla. Faint bitterness sneaks in. 4

Whoosh. This is delicious. Velvety chocolate leads to caramel before and a light, grassy hop finish. Dark chocolate lingers. 4.25

This is exceptionally creamy, smooth and full-bodied. Sweet at first, this finishes dry and a mellow bittter. 4.25

Well, respect to a classic. This is an exceptional beer. Very good in every regard.

delicious. to me, it's perfect. there may be better porters that i don't know about yet but this is exactly what i think a porter should be. the chocolate smell the chocolate taste, the coffee, the perfect amount of sweetness without being overwhelmed by sweetness, the drinkability.
