Lots of coffee and a little bitterness. Smells like damp cellar and coffee. A little sour-sweet in the background as well. OK beer but a little too much coffee for my taste.

On tap at Fraunces Tavern in NYC. Opaque black with reddish hints and creamy head. Roasted coffee and malt on nose. Smells delicious, and taste follows through with rich, classic porter flavors, coffee, burnt caramel, toffee. Could drink this all through a winter’s day. Among the best porters around at this abv.
