nimbleprop (5576) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Sampled at Meridian Pint pours a murky black with some creamy, beige head. Nose has a lovely blend of brown sugar and high quality coffee, toasted bread, malt, mild molasses. Quite fragrant. Flavor is superb, brown sugar, a little cakey, chocolate, coffee bean, roasted malts, mild raisin, even hints of black pepper or ancho. Finishes in spectacular fashion, enveloping, long lasting but dry and peppery. A total surprise. Superb.

Draft at the brewery. Great blend of coffee and smokey porter flavor. Nice foamy cream tan head. Definitely some coffee, smoke, and roasts working. Very good.

Draft pour, dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was notes of roasted malts, touch of chocolate, with some elements of coffee. Flavor was pretty tasty - easy to drink chocolate notes, some coffee. Pretty enjoyable. Alcohol was totally masked in this one.
