On tap @proofbrewing. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, toffee. Mouthful is medium bodied, light chocolate notes with a coffee finish. Other flavors on the palate are some idistinguishable dark fruit flavors, maybe even cherry. All in all a very smooth but bold porter, amazing name aside, awesome brew.

_angst_ (4260) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2016
Bomber courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours hazy dark brown with a huge pale mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with rustic dark bread, toasted malts, coffee, paprika and moist soil. Taste is very tiny sweet, tiny sour, tiny malty and malty. Mouthfeel is round, sparkling and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and tiny bitter with rustic sourdough bread, caramel, hay, moist soil, dark roast coffee, paprika, leather, hazelnut skins and moist soil. Defect but not infected (I think). Huge carbonation and fairly strange malt notes.

On nitro at Mad Mex in West Philly. Crimson brown with a creamy beige head. Nose is coffee, cocoa and caramel. Super silky with a soft tingle. Tastes like it smells; the roasty notes balancing the malty sweetness with nutty hints. Very quaffable.
