On tap at Brewer’s Pizza/Pinglehead Brewery. Black pour with minimal head. Aroma is strong chocolaty porter with some mild roast. Substantial body and gentle hops bitterness makes for a really nice experience. The brewer is talented as he managed to achieve a high alcohol beer that is smooth and easy to drink with plenty of subtlety and a nice full body.
