Its back on tap and hopefully here to stay. Pours a thick brownish-black on tap with frothy tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted and toasted malts, slight bitter chocolate. Taste follows with great lingering coffee flavor and slight piney back end. Really good porter that is surprisingly easy to drink for the abv.

12 oz. can thanks going to Rightcross55 for the chance to try it. Dark brown borderline black with lasting head. Aroma is smoky malt, chocolate, burnt ash, light roasted coffee notes.
Flavor has a good layer of depth. Rich malts give the flavors from the aroma with a solid medium roasted body. Creamy texture on the tongue with traces of ash. Lots of lingering roast. Great example of the style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark pour with deep garnet highlights running through. Powerful aroma of dark coffee and chocolate. Chocolate runs down the center of the tounge with coffee biting at the sides. Dark break laying underneath it all. Starting to be chewy but in a velvety kind of way. No real alcohol burn, no metallic tang from the can.
