Bottle at the RBSG grand tasting. Very dark brown with a tan head. Nice roasted malt and light coffee aroma with a smokey touch. The flavor is dry, with lots of roasted malt and hops. The character of this struck me as very porterish for some reason, though I’t hard to say exactly what that means. illidurit (2338) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 13, 2009
