This is a very unique porter without the traditional sour grainy flavor and palate. It has a very pleasant appearance with a dark chocolate color. The taste is sweet with strong coffee, citrus and vanilla aroma. The palate is very crisp and creamy. A very unique porter that you should try if you happen to be in the DC area.
