Growler, courtesy dchmela. Pours a dark black color almost opaque with a small tan colored head that leaves a little lacing behind. The aroma shows a good amount of chocolate with both milk and bittersweet present. A good amount of roast with toasted caramel and molasses as well. The flavor is very chocolatey with the roast and some bitterness on the backend to smooth out the sweetness. Full bodied and a very creamy mouthfeel with a nice long, dry roasty finish. This is a very tasty and really nice porter.
