UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Draft at Arundel Mills location. Pours deep brown with an nice beige head. Aroma dark roasted malts and dry coffee grounds. Medium mouthfeel. Not too thin, not too thick, just right. Nicely balanced flavor of chocolate, burnt malts, and coffee. Just enough bitter hops on the finish to balance out the sweetness. Very nice robust porter. So good, I wish I would have had more time to grab another before my flight.

Thanks Dana for the bottle. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all around the glass. The smell had a roasty robust black coffee with a sharp bitter hoppiness (slight earthy pine). The taste was mainly sharp roasty robust toasty and dark coffee, light chocolate does enter in a bit at the end. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but nothing overbearing. It carried a nice sharp bitter roasty coffee rolling over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter that I would have again.

Had at Moons. Nice notes of burnt malt, roast and chocolate, but rich chocolate. Body was thin, but it was interesting. I enjoyed it.

Nice porters. I have been really getting into them lately and this one was balanced all around. Not too much of any ingredient.
