Poured from tap into pint glass in December 2017.

Appearance: Very dark black with a very thick tan/brown head. Head is thicker than many other porters & stouts, and left a good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong aroma of roasted coffee and toasted malts. There is some hint of sweetness from caramel, chocolate, and cocoa as well, but overall the roasted malts dominate the others. I do not get much hops aroma. There is a little earthy aroma, which I do not like.

Taste: The roasted malt flavor is pronounced. There is an interesting balance between the coffee, roasted malts, and some bitterness from hops. There is some chocolate and a little berry sweetness, with these and the bitterness enhancing the taste and adding some complexity. There is a medium alcohol presence.

Mouth-feel: Medium alcohol, but with a very smooth body, that is not too creamy.

This is a nice, complex porter, and it has a variety of flavors that adds a nice complexity to the beer. Although this is a medium-bodied porter, it is very smooth and enjoyable to drink.

Solid from this chain though not as bold and malty as it used to be. Gone a little downhill in the last few years.
