bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Aroma of chocolate, and maybe some malt. Very dark brown color; very little head. It ends with chocolate, but it starts with coffee. There are some hops, thinnish body, some undistinguishable fruit. Pleasant to quaff. A bit fresher than many porters. Lively. The aftertaste is coffee with some light bitterness. Took a fair while to get to the aftertaste.
