It poured a deep brown, practically black with a tiny tan head. There was minimal lacing. The aroma has a nice full roastiness with some chocolate to it. The taste has a very full-on roasty, somewhat burnt-ness to it. There are some subtle hints of chocolate and nuttiness to help it along. The palate is medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, this is a good beer, decent for the style.

Almost black color. Medium body,not watery or thin but not creamy or dense. Roasted coffee ,chocolate and malt flavors . What makes this porter stand out is a hop presence when most rely on a strong malt flavor. Not overpowering but enough hops are added to compete with the other elements
