I was fortunate to discover this private label porter at the Pug Mahon’s Irish Pub in downtown Billings, Montana. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film and a spotty lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, some light molasses, coffee and a touch of honey. Taste is smooth, creamy, very little carbonation with a milk chocolate and honey flavor. Finish is smooth, creamy with a light flowery taste. After the finish a lingering light chocolate stays until you order a second or third refill. One of the smoothest and lightest porters around.
