Bottled from growler, thanks hopsrus!!
Black, not much head. Tarry aroma. Overwhelmingly velvetty soft maltiness. Richly fruity and chocolatey. Well balanced sweetness and a salty, bitter finish. Possibly the best porter I've ever had!

Made with Mexican sugar. Dark brown porter with a very frothy tan head. Rich and strong. Subtle chocolate and a dark fruity note. The big frothy head gives a creamy feel but the finish is coffee and hop bitter.
