Has a nice coffee scent with a bit of chocolate. Taste is a bit light of chocolate and roast, lighter body than expected.

On tap at THT, served blatantly cold, after warming though its a solid porter with a lighter roast flavor than perhaps some other offerings, also getting a touch of smoke/ash in the finish.. not offputting just there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler sample shared with oakbluff. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of powdered chocolate, mocha flavored coffee, and a hint of red wine. Flavors are similar, with chocolate dominating things with a bit of red grape and chalk providing additional compexity. Solid dry and drinkable stuff.
