Thoughts: This is one of the best coffee porters I’ve ever had. The coffee is legit. Smell wise, it would definitely pass as an espresso martini. In regards to taste, there’s a low-level chocolatey sweetness at the front, but that mellows out to a lovely bitter coffee finish that lingers. It’s aged on freshly roasted, freshly ground coffee from Groundwork, which is why the coffee is so pronounced. Is it wrong that I would happily start my day with this instead of coffee? 

I want to give a shout-out to Joe at Malt Traders for the recommendation on this one. I already had a fridge full of dark beers, but he insisted this one would be worth it, and God-damn, it sure is!
