It’s not bad. Has a bitter yet almost chocolate taste with a bit of a coffee undertone. The mouthfeel was smooth. All in all it’s a decent tasting brew, but not a very strong flavor.

Dark and coffee like in appearance.
It has a subtle smell with coffee and chocolate notes.
A very rich taste with lots of chocolate and coffee, mild vanilla taste. Bitter finish.
It has a very smooth mouthfeel and is not very heavy.
Overall, this isn’t my cup of tea. The taste is a little too rich and bitter.

Growler. Thanks for sharing, Bil. Aroma is a bit of soft malt and wet chocolate. This is a cola porter, in that it’s sweet and tastes like stale cola syrup. Roots, ginger, and vague spices. Very little snap and a sweet finish. Languid and drowsy.
