Draft pour pint at the Ski lodge. Never been skiing before, but the lodges have beer, so Iím all in. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin fizz head. Very gentle aroma of roasted malt. Flavor is just hinted with smokey malt, and has a mild chocolate porter background. Flavor is less bold than I would like to see, but overall a nice beer. Enjoyed this.

This black beer has an aroma of coffee liqueur. It has a complex flavor of sweetened coffee and an almost fruity finish. One of the better porters I've tasted.
