Pours dark brown, nearly black with nearly zero head just a touch of off white foam. Nice roast greets the nose followed by some coffee and maybe some cocoa powder. Tastes huge, lots of even roast flavor, minimal hops and some caramel hints. Overall this is a huge porter. A lot bigger in flavor and body than I was expecting. I would love to keep this around the fridge at all times.

12 oz. bottle picked up at Woodman’s. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, a mix of bitter dark chocolate and sweeter, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, decent body, some mild plus bitterness to the finish, the nose is a bit better than the flavor, overall pretty good.

Bottle. The pour is black with a thin head. The aroma is nice, malty and roasty, near perfect for this style. The taste is very nice as well. The malt mixes well and a perfect hint of roast. Nails it for a porter. Well done!
