Notes/Commercial Description:
Dark and full-bodied, this is our interpretation of the classic English Porter style. Made with nine varieties of malt and assertively hopped, our porter is packed with flavor. Strong coffee and chocolate tones create a special brew for those advancing on the path of fine beer appreciation.

Had this at the Grumpy Troll in Fitchburg today. A friend recommended this. It was jet black and was served at almost room temperature (they know what they're doing). It had a white head that retained for 5 minutes or so. My spouse reported that I had a "mustache."

I smelled both coffee and some dark chocolate. I believe no coffee is added to this but this almost surprises me considering that I think the coffee overpowers the chocolate.

Taste wise, it's excellent. It had that rich creamy mouthfeel. Very smooth and easy to drink. Tasted roasted malt plus more dark chocolate. In a way, it's a relaxing beer to drink, not overwhelming.
Be sure to order this!
