Had on tap at the SE Brewpub. Aroma is roasty and malty with hints of coffee. Flavor is a great match of roasty and burnt flavors and has a ever so slight sweetness to it. Overall this is a great beer, very balanced and easy drinking.

Draught at the Laurelwood NW Public House. Like the organic porter, with more burnt malt grain. Rich, chocolately stuff. Full-bodied. Not a monster, but just right!
