Nice dark beer with a rich, light tan head. The nose is roasted malts, a hint of coffee, dark chocolate and some bitter char. The taste is heavy on the char and bitter dark chocolate but it is followed by a nice roasty sweetness. Really nice porter.

look: Very dark brown, decent sized tan head on the pour.
smell: mild roasty semi-sweet chocolate.
taste: much like the nose, though i guess i would call it roasty bitter-sweet chocolate. Nice Porter.
