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

Aroma is roasted malts, some sweet maltyness, ashes as well as chocolate, coffee and mild liquorice. Aroma is toasted malts, chocolate, roasted coffee, liquorice and some slight bitterness in the finish. Pleasantly balanced session porter.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
650ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger head that settles slowly and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with carbonation typical for the style. A well done porter that I recommend for others to sample.
