Stronger licorice flavor than expected but otherwise a nice smooth, full-bodied porter.

Pours almost black. A thick light brown head develops and settles to a thin topping that laces the glass.

A rich chocolatey nose with some light roastiness.

Medium body and hop bitterness to balance the sweetness. The inviting malts in the aroma come through in the taste delivering the chocolate and coffee roastiness.

A - Pours a very dark brown with a two finger brown head. Good amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is dark chocolate and roasted malts.

T - The taste is dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. The finish has a light lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Soft creamy mouthfeel with a nice crisp finish.

O - One of the best and most easily accessible porters. A perfect example of the style. A must try,
