Clear nut brown color with brown head. Aroma licorice, roasted malts, roasted nuts, rich chocolate with some coffee. There is some burnt wood also. Sweet with a hint of sourness, gentle bitter ending. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, with some ashy taste, like a mixture og raw roasted coffee beans. Bitter aftertaste mixed with roasted coffe and cocoa beans. Very enjoyable.

Comes together alright, just not a lot of flavour. Some roast malt, lace and head is ok. Some nut as well, I’m going to say macadamia just to sound pretentious. Pours maroon. Some caramel in malt. On tap at brewpub.

12 fluid oz bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a tan head that quickly diminished. Aromas of cocoa, biscuity malt, light citrus, light dried fruits, and molasses. The taste starts with a light smokey note, cocoa, coffee grounds, a faint spearmint note, and a bitter finish. Reminds me of a lighter Mill Street Coffee Porter. Nothing groundbreaking here, but a totally rock solid dark ale. Recommended!

Hazy brown amber color, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt that adds light chocolate bittering at the finish. Doesn’t stand out from the crowd. Easy drinking, but a little heavy on the back end.
