Bottle. The pour was a deep dark pitch black with a huge (3-4 finger) medium tan frothy head that was fully lasting and possessed excellent streaky lacing.
The aroma was of roasted chocolate malt and leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses and a touch of smoke.
The taste was very malty with a mild sweet chocolate note at first, but then the taste shifted slightly to a mild bitterness with a good strong coffee presence and a light sweet molasses ending. The flavor hung on for a very long time proceeding the swallow with a nice bitter coffee taste left to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was almost full in body with a dry oily texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this is a great tasting Porter that was quite easy going down and had an exceptional bold robust flavor, making this one hek of an enjoyable drinking experience…

Draft pint from Slainte. Mahogany with ruby red tint, nice tan lacing, moderate carbonation. Coffee and malt in the aroma, malty hops taste and mildly bitter finish. A solid porter if a bit more hoppy than I prefer for the style. Very enjoyable.
