listed as the chocolate porter. had most of a pint with dinner with my sister, really liked it following the adovada and the light belgian pale i had before. pour is black with a very thin head that does not last. cocoa nose with a bit of peanut butter. rich chocolate flavor with a very nice cocoa finish. the sweet chocolate is balanced by the dry cocoa. i picked up a couple of growlers to take to some beer folks back in denver tomorrow in exchange for a couch to sleep on, cheaper than a hotel room.
