Black with ruby highlights when held up to the light. Tan head with good retention. Very pretty to look at.
The nose was light and subtle. There was definite chocolate and coffee aromas. Very typical porter nose.
The flavor just didn't seem to be there. If I closed my eyes and was drinking this beer blind, I think I would have a hard time picking it out as a porter.
Again, the beer was cold and wet. Basically there wasn't a feeling of having a beer - it went down more like perrier. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, but when I have a porter, I want it to be a little more unctuous.
It's definitely drinkable. It's a solid beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped with 3414-091212. Sampled on January 20, 2014 and I have to think it is well past its expiration date.
The pour is dark brown with a short-lived tan colored head. Great color.
The aroma is of dark malts, smoke, butter, and earthy hops.
The body is in the medium range with a creamy texture.
The taste is much like the aroma with a decent dark malt forward character, mild sweetness, burnt barley, and a fairly mild hop finale. A pretty well balanced Porter that is easy to drink.
