This is a dark molasses, black with light exposure. There’s a low malty aroma, roasty with a lot of coffee and chocolate. Tastes sweet with a full body and a long finish. Starts off smooth, gets sharp, and ends with a long roasty finish. It’s good but give it some time in a barrel and cask-condition it and it could be… amazing.

Creamy, roasty, great coffee aroma and flavor. From the bottle I received more of a bitter taste than on draft, which wasn't necessarily a bad thing. This was definitely a robust porter, not thin in the slightest, and complimented the coffee immensely.
