This beer pours a gorgeous deep brown with burgundy highlights and a thick tan head that seems to last forever. The aroma is creamy milk chocolate with supporting roasted malt, herbal hops and a low level of mixed berries. The flavor builds on the aroma with a slightly higher intensity of milk chocolate and a medium hop bitterness that builds and lingers through a moderate residual sweetness, helping to create a pleasant dryness in the finish. The herbal hop flavor, berry character and a hint of coffee play a supporting role. The creamy mouthfeel adds a touch of fullness to the light body, but a touch more is needed to create a more pleasing mouthfeel. Still though, this is a very nice porter with extra creaminess from the nitrogenation.
