Tasting notes

Heavy malt, light hop nose, taste of cocoa, medium to heavy mouth feel. Definitely can taste the alcohol in this one. Medium tan head, beautiful dark chocolate and medium body. A Padron 64 Maduro goes well with roasted flavor of the chocolate malt. Overall a textbook example of a Porter.
