COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich black porter with a unique blend of chocolate, coffee, roasted and nutty flavors. Brewed with cocoa powder and conditioned with cacao nibs from Taza Chocolate. Bold flavors from the cacao nibs and black malts are balanced with a special blend of pale malts, oats and wheat to produce a lush and lingering mouthfeel.

Mild chocolate coffee aroma. Black body with a tan half inch head. Rich cocoa and coffee taste. Has lively carbonation but still manages to have a smooth silky feel. Excellent for this style. I’ll look forward to having this one again.
