JoeMcPhee (8214) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
Deep black pour with a tight dark tan head. A rich sort of chewy aroma. A little bit of date and some earthy hop bitterness. Light sweetness and a bit of earthiness. Sweet and unctuous with a lot of dark chocolate and some roast. More cocoaish and a touch of soft brown sugary sweetness. More porter than BIPA but it’s tasty regardless.
