Poured from 12 oz. bottle into DFH pint glass for a live review.
A - Dark as an Imperial stout, with 2 full fingers of bubbles which vary greatly in size. Recedes fairly quickly, leaving heavy lacing, which sticks around for the duration.
S - Buckets of roasted malt and cocoa nibs. Lays the foundation for a solid, robust porter.
T - Very malty and bitter, with smoke, coffee and chocolate. A long, full-fledged taste, which hangs around in its entirety for a considerable amount of time.
M - More carbonated than I would have preferred. Too light and sparkly for a beer with this deep a flavour. Takes away from the overall experience.
O - I used to live in Cleveland, where I drank this beer all the time. I don't drink this one enough anymore. A delicious brew, and at $7.99/6 pack from the local Fresh Market, you'll be hard pressed to find better value for money. Recommended.
