DRAFT REVIEW: Stark Porter

Stark offers incredible molasses, toffee, chocolate, and caramel notes in its aroma; the smell is potpourri for beer lovers. The rich nose promises an equally big taste, and the dark, shadowy beer delivers: It centers around a complex malt flavor that echoes the nose, the smoothness of the chocolate, and molasses perfectly balanced by a light hop bitterness that lasts through the finish.
