A classically styled porter, this pours a deep, dark brown color with a frothy tan head. The nose leads with powerful, attractive notes of coffee, roasted malt and cocoa that follow through to the medium-bodied palate, though with a bit less intensity. It's surprisingly easy-drinking, with decent carbonation and a pleasant, soft astringency that graces the finish.
