Pour a deep dark brown. A couple fingers of soapy head. Leaves nice lacing.

Smells of coffee. Bittersweet chocolate and and an almost sugar cookie sweetness.

Taste is a nice balance of bitter and sweet notes. It also largely follows the nose.

Fairly rich on the palate for under 6 %.

Well executed porter.
