Poured an opaque dark chocolate color with a 1F head in a Stone Imperial pint glass.

Aroma: chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and roasted malt. One of the best aromas I have experienced in a Porter.

The aroma transitions well to the taste: mostly roasted malt, with some chocolate.

The finish is slightly hoppy- unusual in a Porter.
Overall: one of the best porters I have tasted. The style can be lackluster in aroma and taste, and the body can sometimes be too thin. This excellent brew has character.

The. Best. Porter. What more needs to be said? I live about 15 minutes from the brewery and get a growler of this about once a week. Beyond delicious, so well balanced, toasted with a little note of coffee at the end. Perfectly roasted!
