This is a very nice and intense on the coffee aromas and flavors example of a porter that was very satisfying. Lots of roasted notes, and with a late bitterness that mixed very nicely with the coffee in this beer.

Chocolate tones with mild bite. Perfect with their lamb meatball pizza.

I liked how smooth yet rich this porter was with no harsh flavor or aftertaste. Very drinkable. I don't always like porter when they taste too strongly of burnt coffee but that was not the case at all. Assertive but balanced and smooth is how I would describe it and it pared very well with the red pepper and flank steak sandwich.

This is the perfect porter - pours a dark copper color with beautiful khaki foam. Smells of roasted malts and the flavor is a perfect balance of sweet and roasted malt - a touch of Melba toast, bitter chocolate and Nilla wafer. So happy to have this locally!
