One of the best porters I’ve had. I went to another site and they were like oh I poured at 44 degrees and into a fucking blah blah blah. It’s a GOOD FUCKING BEER! That’s all that matters, right!

Really dark brown color with brown head. Aroma is nice and fudgy with sweet chocolate and dark malts. Taste follows with dark chocolate and roasted malts, really balanced and easy drinking. Light body but really smooth on the palate. Overall it’s a really good porter, soft and tasty.
