4.15/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a : A touch of light passes through showing a clear dark red. About .5 inch of head that dissipated quickly leaving very little lacing.
s : Chocolate and coffee are the dominating aromas. A hint of cherry is also present.
t : Mmm, that's really good. Coffee and a bitter hoppiness come through most dominate. The chocolate characteristic comes there with a bit of swirling. Also, there is a bit of a warm alcohol that makes this beer finish really nicely.
m : Nicely balanced. Carbonation and density are spot on. The beer leaves a coating in your mouth, but it tastes good so I don't mind.
d : Not a huge porter fan, but I could definately spend my night drinking this beer.

I have grown to really enjoy this brewery out of Cleveland. I have yet to find a poor beer from them. Here I was thinking that I would have a hard time finding quality beer in Erie, PA. Not so, not so.
