Pours a dark caramel brown, almost black. Leaves a big fluffy tan head, which reduces nicely. Leaves a bubbly film and nice lacing.
Smell is some chocolate, caramel, roast malts, a bit of burnt coffee. Maybe a hint of dark fruit. Very nice, if slightly oversweet.
Oh man, the taste is a huge disappointment after the nose. Bitter coffee, a slight tanginess, and that's about it. All the complexity in the nose is lost, leaving a fairly one-dimensional and disappointing experience.
Mouthfeel is a little watery, but carbonation is nice.
Well, this is a gorgeous porter with a great smell, and unfortunately the taste just doesn't live up. Disappointing.
