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.


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.
