Can sample at a tasting at Dror’s place. Thanks Denny. Dark brown with a nice cream beige head. Aroma of malt, nuts, a bit of fruitiness, and a hoppy touch. Sweetish flavor, nutty, with caramel, a bit of chocolate, a fruity note, and a dry finish, mildly bitterish. Medium-bodied. More like a Brown Ale.

On tap, on nitro at the brewery, the beer is dark, chestnut brown with a small milk chocolaty head. The aroma is espresso with hints of chocolate. The medium body is creamy and flows easily over my tongue, carrying a sweet taste and roasted coffee flavors. The consistency is much lighter than you would expect from the visual, and the brew is easy to drink. It makes it that much harder to put the glass down that the coffee is enhanced by a chocolate backdrop that boosts the mildness without overwhelming you with any real sweetness. Nice beer, will have again. And again.

This beer is amazing with a nice balance of roasted flavors that don’t overpower the maltiness and hops. Drink this beer whenever I can get it. Unlike other Porters I have tasted.

"Easily the best of the 4 sockeyed we tried. Chocolate and caramel aroma and flavor with light roast in both. Light to medium bodied, but pretty flavorful. And not stale....yay!!!"
