Taste of the same with more chocolate and malt on the back end along with a creamy silky aspect.This medium bodied brew is well balanced and hits the spot on a chilly evening. One of the better porters

jc1762 (139) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2015
Poured into a teku showing big black and oily with practically no foam. The nose shows some pungent alcohol and a very faint hints of roasted but somewhat sweet (toffee/caramel) malts. The palate is very light bodied with high but unnoticeable carbonation. As the name suggests, it is very smooth and silky. Not a lot of flavor though. Very faint roasted malts with a very slight adzuki/red bean sweetness. Texture-wise it’s great but not a lot of flavor.
