2013-08-16. Black body with a small tan head. 3++ Lightly roasty aroma over dark malt core, bit off coffee like notes, and coffee beans. 6+ Flavour is similar, dark malt base with coffee bean like roast accents. Average plus bodied palate. Not to my taste. Can at Campground Brewdown.

12oz bottle from Georgio’s, Billerica, MA. A lively pour of an opaque pitch black beer with a billowing light tan head; there’s a rich chocolate aroma; in the mouth it’s smooth with a caramel and coffee taste; then a dry and fruity finish. A decent porter.
