Black color with red highlights and a thick caramel head with good retention.
Delicious aroma with lots of high grade cocoa chocolate and coffee. Hints of almonds and vanilla. Feels very natural, I could smell this forever.
Flavor with notes of spices, coffee, cocoa, earthy hops, dark fruits, vanilla and burnt coconut. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness. The coconut is mild, not predominating.
Light to medium creamy body with good carbonation.
Very drinkable, assertive and flavorful Porter. Nice burnt coconut and coffee marriage.
