This is a clean, balanced and straightforward American porter, offering attractive notes of chocolate malt, roasted coffee bean and a hint of dried fruit, like plum and fig. It's opaque black in color, with a thick tan-colored head that lingers nicely. The palate is rich and creamy, with thick bittersweet chocolate and black coffee flavors that linger on the finish, alongside a subtle, drying astringency.
