COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Very dark in color. This robust porter features a pronounced flavor of roasted grains reminiscent of dark chocolate. Also, Paul and Brandon add oats to the grist to give a subtle round silkiness to the mouthfeel.

Nothing real fancy or earth shatering. Just a good all around porter. Very balanced and true to style.

TorbenJensen (831) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
This porter has roughly foaming and partially renewable foam. It emits a powerful and delicious aroma of roasted malt with distinct coffee notes. The taste is initially a little water, but quickly reveals the coffee and English licorice on a malty background of roasted character. Not so many special qualities of this porter, only one type of right and good porter who has just what such a one must have

Bottle: Dark dark color with a tan head. Sweet malty aroma with sweet malty roasted tastes. Full bodied with a smooth aftertaste. It’s nice to have a porter that isn’t overly charcoal bitter aftertaste.

Poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was lots of roasted malts, some bitter chocolates, light toffee, splash of coffee. Flavor was a vibrant roasted character with a nice, bitter dark chocolate character. Light creamy character. Pretty solid.

Some roast with coffee. Well balanced and decent. Pours black with good head and lacing. Bitter finish. Nothing super original here but good. Bottle.
