reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2015
330ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that has excellent retention and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains, chocolate and coffee with some citrus notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain, coffee and citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Smooth mouth feel. Overall, this is an outstanding porter that is both nicely balanced and quite tasty. Highly recommended.
