Heretic Brewing Co. - Shallow Grave Review

Brewery: Heretic Brewing Co.
Location: Pittsburg, Ca
Beer: Shallow Grave
Style: Porter
Serving: Snifter Glass (22 oz.) 
ABV: 7.0%
IBUs: 33

A (3/3): Very dark brown, approaching black with a dark tan colored rocky head.  The lacing coats the glass fairly well when drank.

S (8/12): An aroma of roasted malt with chocolate with faint hints of caramel, cocoa and a touch or raisin.

T (17/20): The coffee flavor was presented immediately very strongly,  followed by a roasted malts and light caramel flavor.

M (4/5): A medium bodied beer with a smooth texture, carbonation, and a very smooth finish.

O (8/10): This is a solid porter,  probably one of the best I've had.  The balance of the roasted malts and chocolate take a bow, drop the mic, and step off stage.

Total:(40/50)
