6.5% ABV, 42 IBU. Grain to glass time: 15 days (but should age a few weeks longer). A full-bodied drinkable beer, designed to not be filling, thus creating a desire to drink another. Pours a silky, dark mahogany appearance with a mocha, velvety thick head. Caramel and chocolate malt forward, with a slight hint of cocoa that leads to a smooth coffee roast without exhibiting burnt grain harshness. A pleasant touch of bitterness lends to a light, dry bite and creates the proper balance of coffee with lingering bittersweet dark chocolate. The perfect dark beer that can be enjoyed year round. Suggested water profile: Sable Porter.
