This 6.0% ABV porter is a new seasonal release from New Belgium Brewing of Fort Collins, Colorado.
The beer pours completely black, even when held to the light. There is a relatively short head of dark tan foam. The aroma has lots of chocolate, dark roasted malts, some char, and a mineral tang. The taste follows the aromas, hitting all the same notes, but even bigger in the flavors. The beer drinks easy and smooth, with a dry finish and moderate bitterness. Nice! This is tasty, drinkable, enjoyable.
