4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown but appears black in glass, with big khaki head and good lacing. Big aroma on this with chocolate, molasses, roasted malt, coffee grounds and a smokiness. Taste is big also with dark chocolate and caramel that give it a sweetness first, then dark roasted malt providing a nice charred, bitter coffee flavor. Finishes with a smooth bitterness that lingers. Body is medium-full with a nice creamy mouthfeel and a low carbonation level. Very good porter or old ale (depending on where you get your info). Flavors are very well integrated and balanced nicely. Was surprised how good this was and would like to try other beers from this brewery.
