Poured into a pint glass. Has a nice brown color with hints of red along the edges. Smells of a rich coffee with notes of molasses. Tastes of coffee with a hint of tobacco as it finishes. Has a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Enjoyable throughout and a nice way to introduce oneself to porters.

I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed this one yet.

Pours a deep dark brown with ruby edges. Tan head that leaves just a bit of lace.

Nose is amazing! This has plenty of dark candied fruits and a great roasted malt aroma with toffee to top it off.

Rich chocolate goodness and a medium body. There is a bit of tobacco and molasses to round this out plus some bitterness from noble hops.

Truly delicious and a treat throughout. Almost desert in a bottle. There is enough dark bready character, roasted malts and melanoidins to really push this above and beyond.
