2nd best porter I've ever tried behind only the immortal HF Everett...what an "underrated" beer... This may be a fridge staple in years to come

A: Midnight black with a frothy tan head.
S: Roasted malt, raisins, dried fruit, a hint of sweetness.
T: Toasted bread, nutty, slight bitterness combined with a hint of chocolate like sweetness. Had a nice dry finish with a slight kick of alcoholic warmth and some smokiness.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation.
O: Very good porter. Was enjoyable from the first to the last sip.

A truly outstanding beer. Simple and effective. Roasty dark malts with light notes of coffee and toffee. Perfect level of bitterness that lingers in the finish. yb
