Black with minimal head. Strong malty aroma, faintly rye, some chocolate, more coffee. Flavor is definitely coffee, but rye adds a nice effect. Moderately sweet, fairly mild and not overly bitter given the coffee quality. Yummy!

Yes sir! Now this is my kind of porter. Thick umber brown, with a tan head. Flavor is your standard good porter style, with a bit of a rough edge that adds a surprising degree of complexity and flavor. My only complaint is that this isn’t bottled and available at my local packie.
