On tap at Russian River Brewery - Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. A brown-black pour with a non-lasting tan head and abundant lacing. The taste is rich and robust. Dark roasted malts, lactose, chocolate, and hints of coffee. Wonderful! Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Overall, an excellent robust porter. I may move to CA.
