What the brewer says

“A light-bod­ied, lower-al­co­hol porter. Lots of roasted cof­fee arises in the aroma and car­ries to the fla­vor. Dark, bit­ter­sweet choco­late fla­vors ap­pear as the beer warms. Smooth, clean fin­ish makes it great for knock­ing back a few pints with friends.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Smooth blend of light roast and choco­late with a touch of vanilla and cof­fee spici­ness. Toasty. There’s burnt-toast char­ac­ter as well.” Fla­vor: “Pretty high on the dark roast char­ac­ter for a porter, and that masks the caramel sweet­ness a bit. Light-bod­ied, but not thin over­all. The fin­ish is dry and roasty with a slight grassy hops char­ac­ter.” Over­all: “In­ter­est­ing malt char­ac­ter, but still has some fruity sweet­ness to keep that from be­ing the defin­ing qual­ity of the beer. Good bal­ance through­out; the fin­ish is lin­ger­ing dark choco­late with hints of cof­fee.”
