Pours a deep, dark brown that barely any light escapes, with dark brown highlights. Has a thick, coffee brown head that thins out pretty quickly, but leaves a nice ring that holds throughout and has pretty good lacing.
Strong aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate, with just a little bit of sweetness.
Strong flavor of coffee, with solid notes of roasted malts and a hint of bitter chocolate and hops. Starts out on the sweeter side, but has a nice hoppy finish.
Medium body. Great carbonation level. It has a nice, creamy feel to it, and the dryness it leaves on the palate is a bit less than a lot of porters.
Good taste and good mouthfeel make this a solid choice to sit and sip on at the end of the day.
