COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2012
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.
