I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. I thought this was not good (I don't like coffee). I would not drink this again.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Amazing aromas of malts and chocolate. Good flavor but tastes too much like a generic porter.Not much complexity.
