Sample pour at the brewery. Dark and healthy amber notes with off white head. Nose is fully roasted malts and rich malts with a light sweetness on the back. Flavor is fully roasted and smooth, some spice from the yeast towards the end. Quite light on the body, almost like an English porter. Not bad, but super drinkable.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2012
A fresh, chalky porter. Lots of dark chocolate in this one - more on the bitter side however. Hops are light at first, and then you are greeted with some roasted notes and light milk chocolate as it warms up. Nice!
