Poured from a 12ounce bottle into pint glass. Opaque black body with about half inch of coffee cream colored head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Thick mouthfeel which reminds me of an Imperial stout. Very slight alcohol bite. The flavors starts of dark chocolate and black coffee . Hints of licorice and more chocolate as it finishes semi dry on the palate. This beer represents an exceptional porter. Please let this warmup to about 50 degrees or so as the chocolate flavors become even more pronounced. A real decadent treat.
