COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A black ale that puts the flavor of the malt front and center. It has a mild hop character that balances strong notes of cocoa and hints of coffee. A full-bodied treat that pairs well with chocolate as well as fresh shellfish.

ben4321 (4381) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012
Location: Draft at the Pacific Standard, 9/8/12

Aroma: The nose is roasted malts, with some coffee and chocolate
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a fairly small head atop it
Flavor: The taste is heavy roasted malts, light sweet, and dry roasted finish
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with average carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This one was a very solid, roasty Porter. I enjoyed this one, a quite solid example of the style.
