Little to no head, dark brown, just shy of a stout

Sweet dark roasted smell, coco, coffee. Hint of hops, floral.

Nice bitter combo from the roast and the hops. Moka taste - same as smell. Fruity flavor emerges that I didn't get in the nose.

Medium body, surprisingly light,
Incredibly drinkable. Great porter, I always enjoy fuller products.

Pours a super dark black, with a one finger cocoa head on it. Decent lacing on the side of my snifter. The nose is molasses, toffee, coffee, and chocolate. Really well done. The taste follows suit, with a slight bitter aftertaste. Medium in feel, with a bitter coffee aftertaste on it. I'd like a little more malt. Overall, a good porter.... I'd have this again. Cheers.

Poured into a pint glass. Has a nice brown color with hints of red along the edges. Smells of a rich coffee with notes of molasses. Tastes of coffee with a hint of tobacco as it finishes. Has a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Enjoyable throughout and a nice way to introduce oneself to porters.
