Notes: Dark and earthy, this robust porter exhibits rich mocha-like complexity, with a dry finish that keeps all hands on deck.

Best By 5/9/15. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours black with a touch of light getting through; small khaki head that fades leaving solid retention and lacing. The aromas have lots of cocoa malts along with some hints of black coffee. Some vanilla notes as well, but chocolate seems to shine. The flavors follow the nose well. More chocolate. Not too bitter. Some sweet notes from the chocolate. Subtle hints of dark fruits as well. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's pretty smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid porter. It's nothing crazy, but it's enjoyable.
