4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at RnH. Espresso brown color with a large off-white head. Aroma included strong notes of bitter sweet chocolate, caramel, and hints of smoke. First sip introduced chocolate and toffee followed by palatable hop bitterness. Great mouthfeel and the sweetness and bitterness dance on the palate long after each sip. Magnificently crafted porter that is a pleasure to drink.
