COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a rich, robust porter, cleverly crafted to integrate the aromas and flavors of espresso coffee malt and bitter-sweet chocolate malt. Inspired by owner Brendan Moylans’ daughter Chelsea, this is an American-Irish Style Porter that dark beer drinkers will love

Pours black with a brown head and chocolatly, coffee aroma. Taste is sweet, lots of chocolate and roasted malt with bitter coffee notes and a long, burnt finish. Light, but enjoyable porter

This is a great complex porter! A good looking deep brown pour with a mocha head that turns into some lacing. I love the coffee and chocolate aroma! The taste follows through with a touch of coffee bitterness up front and then finishes slightly sweet with the chocolate notes. Very light and easy on the palate while being very tasty! Excellent!

From 22oz bottle. Poured dark with a cream head about 1 finger’s width. Mild pleasant aroma. Espresso comes through pretty well without tasting of coffee grounds. Bit of fruitiness in the taste, which seems to become the major aftertaste component. Not bad. Not outstanding, but not bad.

Sweet but not overly so. Chocolate notes are well balanced with the espresso, and the head is fine and long lasting

very dark brown. The aroma is rich sugaryy malt. The head is white and sparse. The flavor... watery sweet maltiness. Body is tingy and cool. More of a malty water than a porter in the familiar sense.

Pours mahogany-tinged black into a shaker. Tan head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Chocolate aromas. Dry with chocolate upfront turning to soy and espresso in the lasting finish.
