Poured a deep clear brown with ruby tints where the light gets through. A nice slightly foamy tan head sits on top throughout and leaves substantial lacing. The aroma is incredible, with notes of bitter chocolate and coffee. The taste replicates it and adds a nice subtle hops kick on the finish. The mouthfeel is just right, not too thick or thin with a nice crispness on the finish. This is a great porter, both bottled and draft.

Almost black in color with a medium light tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is faint but full of cocoa malts and coffee notes. Flavor is smooth and creamy with cocoa malts, light coffee, and very little bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with light carbonation and crisp finish.

Poured into a pint glass. Black with red edges. Smells like burnt coffee and dark cocoa nibs. So well balanced with big smoky coffee flavor and hints of bitter dark chocolate and caramel. Blend of hop bitters, roasted, burnt malt, and just right carbonation. Very sessionable and very good. Perfect for a chilly fall night.
