Another good beer from Dark Horse. Rich chocolatey coffee-flavored porter. One of the better porters I’ve had.

Bottle at home. Dark brown colour, fast dissipating lightbrown head. Nose is chocholate and molasses with light booze. Taste is low sweetness medium bitterness. Cocoa, earth and molasses in the aftertaste with a hint of coffee. Nice, and a lot boozier nose in the nose than in the taste.
