I went to the liquor store looking for something dark and this was what I found. Well, this and Hoyne's Dark Matter (great beer, but not what I was in the mood for). Summer may be over, but we've still got some time to wait for dark beers, it would seem.

Pours quite dark, with three fingers of head. Aroma of coffee, fig, plum, raisins. Taste is more sweet than expected. It's not so sweet it's disgusting, but I could certainly do with less. Very smooth.

Has a old world flavor of rich creamy caramelized ingredients. A true dark Porter that leaves a cooling feeling to the palette for quite some time after it has been drank. The smooth acidic makeup of this Porter enhance the flavors and is inhanced buy smoked or dried meats and fish, as well as sharp or medium cheese. It makes a great night of snacking and visiting. Can lead to drinking more then you planed with its smoothness and can sneak up on you with it's 8 + percent alcohol. Price is more then some but we'll worth its weight, not for the light beer drinkers! But for foodies it can open a whole new world!
