Poured on draft in the Detroit airport.

A: Dark ruby brown with one finger tan head. Plenty of sticky lacing.

S: Roasted coffee beans, bittersweet chocolate. A hint of smoked malts.

T: Coffee and milk chocolate. Very nice blend of roasty flavors tending a bit on the hitter side.

M: Medium body that is fairly typical for the style.

O: Excellent porter. I wish this was in my distribution area.
