pint at Brewery 5-28-11. Good aroma, sweet, malty, chocolate, coffee, nutty, roasty. Brownish Black color, good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, sweet finish. Tasty brew, solid enough porter, nice balance in the aroma flavor was more roasty than sweet, but not overwhelmingly.
