COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With clear notes of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of authentic Icelandic coffee, this Porter is dark and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate and easy to drink. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark anymore.

Pours murky chocolate brown with a small brown head. Nose is Cheerios cereal, roasted coffee, hay and hints of chocolate. Taste is sweet and bitter with a small tart hit on the front. Nice bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is sticky and crisp, body is thin and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
