Bottle from gnosis.. thanks.. Pour is black with a brown head. Lots of it. Chocolate, roasted malt, some light hops on the nose. Taste is diviine... semi-sweet chocolate, some light hoppiness, wood, some smoke, and some bitter coffee. Great balance. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Same resiny texture as Jimmy. Real winner. Best porter I’ve had.
