UPDATED: JUN 27, 2012 Dark cola-like pour with a thin, almost non-existent beige head. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and hint of dark fruit. Slight smoked notes. Roasted malt and bitter coffee are the dominant flavours. The chocolate is there but low key. Slightly dry and a little bitter from the hops. Nice porter.
