Bottle from Sammy, 12oz into a tulip.

Black body with some deep red highlights when held to the light, mocha coloured head with good retention and lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, roast and hops. Palate has more roast, light smoke, bitter dark chocolate and hoppy finish. Lingering bitterness and roast prevails. Medium full feel, medium carbonation. A standard for American style porters.
