Coffee, wood, and kind of a weird chemical aftertaste. Tastes almost like it’s synthetic or something. Not particularly good.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is very thick, lots of chocolate and roasted malt with lighter notes of hops and licorice. The flavor is equally thick, a little too heavy on the roasted malt for my tastes in a Porter. It’s fairly burnt tasting with a tobacco and licorice undertone. Some lightly citrusy hops on the finish. Medium bodied and a bit chewy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, not a Porter for me.
