COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mild bitterness and a spicy aroma balance this perfect blend of caramel, coffee, and subtle roasted malt flavors. This brew emphasizes smooth, chocolatey goodness. A complex malt body gives this porter its robust character. Hops are present, yet almost untraceable on the foreground of the palate. Beneath a solid head of dark tan, our porter is black in color and highlighted with auburn hues. This brew tastes as deep as it looks and at 6% ABV, is stronger than most in its class. Dedicated to Shastafarians near and far, we salute the mountain that unites and refreshes us all.

olio (7876) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2015
355 ml bottle.
Pours dark ruby red color with a small off-white head. Hops and malts on the nose, some cocoa, caramel and distant milky chocolate. Sweet cocoa flavor, dark malts and very faint vegetables, must be the coffee turned a bit old. Decent.

lusikka (7413) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2015
355 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roastiness, herbal notes and tobacco. Flavour of rich roastiness, grassy bitterness, tobacco, some herbal notes, some mild vegetable notes and coffee. Medium bodied. A bit thin and not at it’s best anymore as the coffee has turned into vegetables. But anyways Weed, CA is a place I’d like to visit.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Big chocolate aroma. Huge coffee flavor. Palate is medium full. Moderate carbonation bite, which compliments the nice body throughout. This is an excellent porter, borderline stout with its body and roastiness.
