Clear dark heavy brown with a khaki head. Aroma is dark and roasty with some bittersweet cocoa tones, coffee roast, and light but present leafy hops. Flavor is dark and sweet with pleasant chocolaty tones with chocolate bitterness as well, light coffee tones again, with a light pine/leafy bitterness that adds a wonderful hop dimension that’s neither overbearing or bitter. Before I was told it was a bipa, I thought it was a coffee porter. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
