An interesting porter that's aged two months in San Pasqual Tawny Port barrels. The latte-colored head is ridiculous, taking over the glass and then falling slowly. There's a soft booziness to the bouquet, with aromas of chocolate sauce, sweet spice, caramel and dark fruit keeping it together. The mouth is full and roasty with a soft alcohol kick livening up the oak-infused finish.
