Taste Notes

A very smooth but robust porter. Forward coffee flavors followed by a distict chocolate finish. This beer has received rave reviews from all that have tried it, to include non beer drinkers.

Notes

Used the recepie from Heretic's Shallow Grave Porter from Morebeer. I then added freshly brewed coffee to increase coffee flavor. Heretic did a great job . The coffee addition makes it even better. I have brewed this several times and is by far my favorite. Highly recommended.
