Aggiebob (974) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle. It poured black with a mocca head. The aroma was dark chocolate and coffee bean. The flavor includes roasted malt, chocolate and some light dark fruits. It has a thin oily mouth feel. I liked this the first time I had it in Cleveland years ago and I still think it is a very good Porter.

Its a really good beer, and has a forward grapefruit hop presence. Not the best Porter Ive ever had though. Would probably take a pass for some other porters.

Backlog entry: I had this one at the brewery. Its a solid beer, nothing too unusual or stand-out. Im surprised this beer is Top 50, a solid representation.
