I had this on draught in a pub. It was poured into a pint glass. It pours virtually jet black with a creamy, mocha-colored head and lacing. It's a most attractive pour. It smells of dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and nuts. The taste begins with sweet chocolate on the tip of the tongue, followed by burnt coffee and a hint of caramel. This porter is creamy, medium-bodied, and lightly carbonated. It's ABV of 5.5% makes for easy drinking. Overall, I was quite pleasantly surprised by this local Pennsylvania porter. It is well crafted, has a nice flavor, and is very pleasant to drink.
