Our robust Porter shows bittersweet flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. It has very complex malt character enhanced by yeast fruitiness.

Honestly, I was expecting more. Its a solid porter but nothing spectacular. Could be that I just got a bottle that had been stored too hot briefly. Somewhat bittersweet with a little coffee, little chocolate, but just left me feeling that the beer wasn’t any more exciting than the label. Just okay.
