Pours very dark with initially large deminishing tan head. Aroma is mild cocoa, roasty malt, earthy yet also creamy and a touch of vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, sweet yet cleanly dry bitter. Minimal carbonation and quite oily in the mouth. Very nice porter!

A nice bold creamy porter with the right amount of heft. If you’re looking for a decent porter, this is a good choice. Appreciated it first on tap at Trollhaugen Ski Area, it made me an O’SO fan.
