4.5/5  rDev +7.1%

A: Pours a deep, dark brown, hints of red when held to a light, very fine effervescence and off white lace

S: Super malty, chocolate, freshly baked bread and earthy, autumn aromas

T: Malty and chocolaty up from, woodsy, mineral and sweet molasses, hint of leather and just enough hop to cleanse the palate and balance the malty sweetness

M: Very light, very carbonated, sweet without being syrupy, smooth with a good mouthfeel (2percent milk)

O: An excellent example of the style (perhaps the archetype given its longevity). Complex flavor profile, great autumn beer and easily quaffable .

500 ml bottle poured into English pint glass. very dark. 3 finger head that leaves some lacing. Nose has malt, chocolate, coffee. Very smooth. Coffee and chocolate notes with a slightly bitter finish. Excellent beer! Great Porter - a sweet malt finish.

Excellent example of a porter. Nice chocolate/coffee flavors smoothly balanced with just a hint of bitter at the finish.
