Bottle at home. Pours a deep brown to black color with a small, light beige head. Fruity hops with peaches in the aroma at first, and then coffee and dark chocolate. The flavor is more roasted with coffee beans, cocoa, ash and hint of smoke. Has a rich mouth feel, and a balanced, solid bitterness. A great, rich and well-roasted strong porter.
