  • 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!

  • Poured with a finger of thcik, light brown foam into my snifter. Some retention and lacing.

    Chocolate and coffee join together to make a very nice aroma. Roasted malt adds to the complexity.

    Roasted malt with a bit of sweet up front. The middle has some fruit and mild yeast. Finishes with creamy chocolate and mocha coffee.

    Medium level of carbonation and good body. The transition through the middle of the taste is really interesting and sort of nice transition that I thought help make this a really good beer.

    A nice blend of the flavors that doesn't overwhelm either the nose or palate. A beer that is easily sesionable. One beer that I am glad it came in a six pack. Enjoy!
