BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery
United States | website

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This inky, black ale was brewed with a healthy dose of chocolate malt and milk sugar. but that wasn't good enough...we then infused this beer with 20 lbs of organic Ecuadorian cacao nibs, cinnamon, and Tahitian vanilla bean for a rich, satisfying flavor. Dessert in a glass? Maybe...heck...have it for breakfast!

Had on tap at Rock Bottom Lombard. Served in a nonic pint.

A: Pours a dark black color with a creamy tan head forming on the pour. It dissipates to a thin cap and leaves some sticky webbing of lace down the glass.

S: Some bakers chocolate, light coffee bean and heavily roasted malts.

T: Sweeter milk chocolate. Coffee bean and vanilla. Mild lactose sugar sweetness with a heavily roasted malt body carrying the sweetness throughout each sip.

M: Medium bodied with a medium to high semi-prickly carbonation. Creamy feel to it.

O: This was a very solid porter. The taste was nice, but the nose was a slight let down. Glad it picked back up.
