A- pours dark brown-almost black with just a bit if light seeping through, creamy light-tan head that retains long after the pour with a ring of lace sticking to the sides.
S- grainy roasted malts with a bit of cocoa and coffee, slight hop bitterness
T- roasted & toasted malty goodness, smoky firewood with a bit of charcoal, mid-palate transitions into silky sweet chocolate flavors with a touch of caramel, the finish is smoky and dry-yet-sweet with rich chocolate on the linger. The smokiness provides almost a dried meat flavor. Flavors are so complex, yet just enough hop to balance it out. The smoky flavors sit on the palate long after consumption.
M- medium body with low carbonation, velvety smooth mouthfeel leads to a silky finish
O- be of the best examples of an American porter out there. Smoky, chocolaty and silky smooth. This is probably my favorite everyday porter and one that I'm glad I can get very easily.
