COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter has a full body with some hints of chocolate from the chocolate malt and midnight wheat. The mild noble hop aroma showcases the roasty flavors and subtle fruit and spice notes of the artisan-roasted Fair Trade/Organic coffee of Black Mountain, NCís Dynamite Roasting Co.

A: Very nice aroma. Bold dark roast coffee. Irony porter smell. A: Pours looking a little thin. Head has some pretty big bubbles and sort of a dull brown color. Not mind blowing looks wise. Color is dark brown T: Tastes like a porter. Lighter in body. Slight hints of coffee especially on the finish. Light on the taste. A bit acidic. P: Acidic on the palate. Light. Some decent flavors but nothing bold. Overall not a mind blowing beer but pretty good. Some nice coffee notes. Solid for a porter: seduce your friends who are afraid of dark beer with this one.

Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has fresh mild coffee and roastiness. Flavor has nice fresh roasty coffee...a light and faint spiciness that almost comes off as hot pepper. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a roasty/bitter coffee finish...just a hint of a burn...id swear there was hot pepper in this. Fairly one dimensional but tasty.

Bottle->tumbler. Deep brown with small offwhite head. Great coffee and malt aroma; taste is coffee with roasted and chocolate malt. Bittersweet coffee aftertaste is quite pleasant. Very good.

6 pack for 9.49. Iíve been waiting for this one all year. Pours black with a slight amber hue to it and a tan head. Really nice looking porter. Smells like coffee and a little roasted malt as well. Taste is pretty much the same; coffee and roasted malts. Body is medium, a little thinner than I like though. I wonít hold it against this beer simply because of how good it is. Definitely worth the wait.
