A super dark porter with loads of rich, dark maltiness and chocolate flavors. What a beautiful head!

11/12....served on tap at DC. Pours brownish dark. Light foam. Roasted coffee noise. Taste is a roasted flavor with coffee background. Light carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Light bodied. Good flavor though.

Pretty much your standard porter, but I'm not going to complain. Pours a nice dark brown with a small head. It wasn't as thick as your average porter but had some strong chocolate notes. I'm a sucker for porters so this was perfectly serviceable, but if you're not a particular fan of the dark stuff it's probably not worth specially seeking out.
