Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and some floral hops. Very dark red with a fully lasting, tan head. Some sweet, chocolatey, toffee-like, nutty flavors, and earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with low carbonation, and lingering chocolatey flavors after the finish.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2014
At the brewpub served as Original Nitro Porter. Very dark clear brown pour with good creamy tan persistent head. Subtle cocoa and cracker notes and lots of roastiness on the nose. Flavor is surprisingly sweet and with earthy, leather, milky chocolate tones. Big velvety mouthfeel. And despite all those good aspects, I still didn’t care for it all that much. But objectively, it was a pretty good beer.

From the tap came a dark brown brew with a thick, lucious, nitro, light brown head. Aromas of malt, chocolate, with hints of vanilla. Medium full bodied with flavors of earthy malt, chocolate, hints of vanilla and honey with a earthy hop finish.
