Nice deep almost black color. Good solid head of creamy small bubbles

Aroma of chocolate

Taste of semi-dark chocolate at first, warms to mocha, then ends with slight warmth

Full and rich mouthfeel that totally hides the alcohol

An outstanding porter

Best Porter I've tried, easily becoming one of my favorite beers. Too bad it's not easy to come by in Mexico.

Pours a nice dark roast with a moderate head that breaks down to a few bubbles, the smell is sweet and malty, promising a taste that does not dissappoint. Great long finish.

From a bottle into a pint glass.

A: pitch black with a thin layer of wispy foam atop the brew. Moderate lace

S: strong notes of coffee and dark chocolate fill the nose while malts are noticeable but only slightly.

T: follows the smell exactly. This is a very full flavor beer with lots of coffee and dark chocolate.

M: this one surprised me. I expected it to be on the heavy side based in looks and smell but I would call it medium at best. I would have liked it a bit thicker maybe...

O: My first time trying this one and I was not disappointed. I'm a huge fan of porter and stout style beers and this fit right it! Buy some and see for yourself.
