What else could you want from a Porter? Roasted Chocolate Malt. That settles it in my book.

Poured with a tan head and some lace. Tanish brown head. Nice roasty malty nose with a little dark ripe fruit, cocoa, coffee, a hint of vanilla and chocolate. Flavor is basically the same as aroma. In spite of the richness it’s fairly drinkable. Very full flavored.
