My favorite beer of the visit. Tons of chocolate, both in the aroma and the flavor and it combines with the coffee/roasted notes to provide depth of flavor. Some residual sweetness is left, to keep the beer flavorful enough without feeling like you’re chewing on a coffee bean. The sweetness helps bring out the mocha flavors in this porter. The best beer of the visit.
On tap. Pours with a black body and a light brown head. Aroma of smoke, vanilla and dry coffee. Taste is very nice and smokey with dry coffee. Creamy mouthfeel and lively bubbles. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Draft. Mahogony beer with a dark cream colored head. Caramel and light roast aroma. Caramel, nutty, malt flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel and nuttiness lingers.
