On tap at the brewery. Pour a dark brown with a dark brown head that dissipates slowly. Aroma has light dark fruit and light spice with a touch of dark grains. Flavor starts with light fruit and flora but finish is mainly dark grains.

Aroma of roasted malts with chocolate notes. Pours a pleasing opaque black with tan head and no lacing. The taste consisted of dark roasted malts with hints of vanilla, chocolate, and perhaps coconut. Medium to medium-full body with soft carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a. very tasty, smooth, satisfying porter. Good job John!
