Deep Enders Dark Porter, Anderson Valley Brewing Company, Boonville California
Anderson Valley....Consistently one of my favorites!
It pours opaque with a tight head.
The aroma is all malty.
The taste is smooth, very smooth. It's malty in the full body with a slight sweetness. There is bitterness in the finish, but it is very light. It is chocolaty and roasty without dominating the palate.
The aftertaste is roasty malt and it resets quickly. It's smooth, very smooth and doesn't stick around being sticky and thick.
A great smooth porter!
