COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The quintessential General Lafayette Inn brew, we carry on the tradition at the Crow of producing this rich, flavorful dark ale. Call it a Porter, call it a Stout, we call it delicious. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted flavors blend with an uncanny drinkability in this local legend.

A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet chocolaty with light notes of alcohol, while the flavor is sweet with strong notes of chocolate and prunes as well as light notes of alcohol, leading to a dry woody end.

Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, coffee, burnt), light hops (herbs), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, leather) with notes of prune, tar, and soy sauce. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.
