Roasted barley, chocolate malt and locally roasted coffee lend this porter its full, rich character. A fitting tribute to the Old North we call home, brewed in collaboration with Diesel House Coffee Roasters.
First released in November 2010.
Pours almost black with beautifully creamy, mocha-coloured foam. Upon further inspection, the colours are actually deep ruby, garnet and dark brown. The aromas include cappuccino, mocha, chocolate and vanilla with a hint of molasses and pie crust. The flavours include subtle sweetness with dark chocolate, mild coffee and tiramisu. The mouth feel is dry (fairly mild) with some initial sweetness. The finish is medium-to-moderate bitterness that lingers and delivers a nice coffee profile that arrives quite late.
