My last thank you to Chris for his very thoughtful gift. Pours black with a medium, although short lasting, tan head. The aroma is roasted, with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and some slight licorice as well. The taste brings out a lot more of the chocolate. Coffee flavors are still there, and there is some smokiness as well. Lighter in body, with an oily and somewhat thinner texture. Short aftertaste that is a smoky coffee. This is a pretty good porter. There is really cool artwork on the can as well.

This baby here has an aroma of pretty light roasted malts, gentle hops and a hint of something I can’t put my finger on. The taste is more complex than you might think, at first it feels a bit thin and ordinary, but slowly it develops into a soft, sweet malty experience that transforms once more into a fruity and semi-dry finish. There is liquorice in here as well as some very light salty ingredient in there. I´m impressed.
