Bottle poured into a shaker pint.
Pour: Deep muddy brown, but not quite back. Finger of light tan head that recedes to a rim and leaves a light lacing.
Smell: Roasted chocolate and light coffee. Some creamy sweetness comes out on the nose too. A light amount of floral hop character.
Taste: A light roasted mocha aspect. Elements of coffee and chocolate are not very distinguishable, fusing together in delicious fashion. Again, a light floral bitterness towards the end, but not much.
Mouthfeel: Wow, this is awesome. All the amazing flavors of a fine porter, but in a very easy going package. Velvety smooth carbonation, with a splashy yet fulfilling body.
Overall: Really nice porter, and can understand why it is so world renowned.
Serving type: bottle
