Pours almost black with a hint of red around the edges of the glass as I hold it up to the light. A half finger tan head quickly disappears into a thin layer of foam floating on top. Lacing is thin and spotty.
Aroma is dark and rich. I am getting dark roasted malts with coffee and a hint of chocolate.
The first sip gives me big sweet malts. The sweet malts are followed by a blend of milk chocolate and coffee and finishes with an earthy hop that balances everything out perfectly. A slight dry bitterness is present on the finish.
Medium bodied with a lighter carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel, but has a watery quality to it.
A very nice porter with nice flavors and balance. A very easy drinking beer that I could enjoy year round. Add this one to your list, it is a good one!
