Bottle. Black in color with a brown head. A hearty aroma of toasted malts and chocolate. This beer has a nice body, feels rich and leaves a long aftertaste of malts and chocolate.

Bottle: Costco - San Leandro: Black with a nice frothy tan head that sticks around for about 15 minutes. Malty bitter sweet choco aroma for sure just as advertised. GREAT flavor with a fruity tang at the end of the flavor. Smooth feel and super easy to drink. Another phenomenal brew from Drakes.

Aroma is dark cocoa powder, roasted malts. Taste is dark cocoa, some smoke, ashy, dry woody earth. Not too rich or roasty. Reminded me of a sessionable Dry Stout.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Black body, moderate airy head. Well-rounded porter. A complex beer that isn’t overpowering. Would make a solid session beer.

Dark brown black pour with brown foamy head from a 22oz bottle at home. Roasty, nutty, malty and burnt leaves aroma. Taste is basically the same with chocolate and cocoa added and a touch of coffee. Very smooth and good.
