Contains what I’m looking for in this style. Moderate roastiness, lots of caramel, coffee, some chocolate. Not too viscous. Not one to blow the drinker away, but gosh darn I love a well made porter.

Malt forward aroma, caramel, and dark fruit . Pours black with a aggressive, mostly diminishing tan head and minor lacing. Taste is malt, coffee, caramel, hints of chocolate and a nice hoppy bitterness at the end. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Smooth. Overall, I found this to be a very smooth and enjoyable porter.
