A really solid, flavorful porter with nice complex malt notes. Notes of coffee, dark bread, and a hint of smoke as well.

Smooth robust porter, big roasted coffee and dark bakers chocolate. Medium to full mouth-feel for a porter. Slightly smokey with great carbonation. Has a creamy finish.

Aug 2015 brewery draft - pour dark black, typical porter. Brown foam. Still. Strong coffee nose. Burned bitter. Smooth mouthfeel, maybe too much so. Heavy bitter, all coffee. Good porter, but a little strong.

This is what a porter should taste like! This is a very full bodied beer with a beautiful roasted flavor. I really enjoyed the coffee and roasted maltiness. This is a very enjoyable beer after you have worked outside in the cold all day.
