Source: Brouwer’s Cafe, Seattle
Appearance: black, creamy brown head, heavy patterned lace
Aroma: dark chocolate aroma, sweet fruity esters
Body: creamy body
Flavor: rich sweet chocolate flavor, sweet fruity esters enhance the chocolate, hint of fruity tartness, balancing earthy bitterness, roasted along with a big hop character keeps it balaned on the bitter side, sharp spicy ginger shows up toward the bottom of the glass
Overall: a Belgian porter? is there such a thing?

picking up more of the bitter and earthy character to overshadow the malty sweetness,
