60minuteman (720) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Dark charcoal black, minimal tan head. Aroma of roast, hops, coffee, bits of cacao, malt and barley. Flavor is similar. Earthy porter, very good balance. Can get more flavor from other porters but the Taddy brings another element to it. It is sharp, balanced and clean it tastes just like it should.
