Aroma is of coffee and chocolate. Body is pitch black with a thin tan head. Taste is heavy dry chocolate with coffee mixed in. Hint of caramel sweetness in the background though you have to pay attention to notice. Medium bitterness. Warms the palate with it’s heavy 10% ABV otherwise it’s power is not noticeable. Thick and slick feeling so best enjoyed slowly. Enjoyable and well balanced. I’d be happy to have many more of these.

12 oz bottle from Rosey. Smells really good, chocolate and malt. Really nice vanilla notes with yeast. Looks a little thinner than your average porter. Really nice, not exceptional.
