Notes / Commercial Description:
A porter with hints of chocolate & coffee balanced by subtle smokiness
First Release: December 1996

When first released, our smoky version of a traditional English porter was ahead of its time. Today, it's a highly regarded staple among craft beer fans and our go-to food complement, pairing effortlessly with all kinds of cuisine, from peanut butter and banana sandwiches to braised pork belly and apple pie. This worldly libation is dark, smooth and complex, with chocolate and coffee flavors suffused with subtle smokiness from the addition of peat-smoked malt.

Deep ruby almost black yet clear body. Brown rocky head consisting of tiny and small bubbles. Good lace and retention.
The smell is wonderful sweet malt roasted and toasted to perfection. Chocolate and a little hop bitterness.
Taste is roasted coffee bean and semi sweet chocolate followed by a smokey mild hoppy aftertaste.
Very mellow and gentle mouthfeel. Smooth and full sturdy body leaving a good coating.
Session brew all over the place yet has so much personallity that it can easily stand on it's own. Amazing, simply amazing.
