Damn near black in appearance. Thin creamy brown head has decent retention. Lace leaves rings. Aroma is heavy and roasty. Burnt tones and coffee bean noted as well. There is a nice roasted bitterness to the taste that is offset quite nicely with a lactic sweetness. The milky character really lends a smoothness to this beer that almost makes me want to think this is some kind of "milk porter." The bittersweet chocolate tones check in nicely as well. Body is smooth and creamy...a little silky and the drinkability high. Good offering.

Thanks for the growler dudey.
