Mothers milk in my humble opinion. This is the best porter I have tried so far and the one all others will be judged by. A good winter beer, I love the strength of flavor while at the same time being very smooth. Complex coffee/roasted grains/hint of chocolate flavors that change as the beer warms in my glass.

Opaque... absolutely zero light gets through this beer... awesome look. !/4" head dissipates quickly with nice lacing.

Smell is chocolately with sherry notes. Somehwhat hoppy. Whiffs include alchohol, maple, vanilla and anise.

Flavor is very good with sherry, bourbon, plum, dried fig, and raisin.

Very nice on the palate.

A very, very good beer!
