Black color. Dusty aroma, meat, roasted malt. Medium body strength, roasted malt flavor, some ashes, light Tequila. The final is dry bad coffee. Quite weird.

Sample from growler shared by dchmela @ Redlight. Pitch black with tan head and lacing. Some diacetyl is sitting on top of a nice coffee aroma. Oodlies of coffee and roasted malt with a nice creaminess. Excellent brew.

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.
