Smells like starbucks in a glass - coffee a-go-go in the nose and in flavor. Deep dark opaque brown. Deep roasted malts, espresso bitter end. Could be thicker in body. Maybe too roasted but good overall.

Very solid porter. Rich, roasty dark chocolate and mild sweet caramel malt backbone with bits of woodiness and coffee bean hints. Nice light floral hop component. A tad yeasty on the finish. Nice drink overall.

Roasted ash aroma, some choco, slight smokiness. Opaque with crimson edges yet maintains a light swirl. Black malts are nicely balanced with slight creamy caramel and decent hoppiness. Just a great beer. Thanks André!
