Pours out a deep brown/black color with a tan head. Some ruby highlights poke around the edges.

Smell was of roasted malts with light hints of chocolate. Some toasty grains can be detected in the background as well. Perhaps a hint of cocoa is also in there.

Taste was balanced, I thought. Although it felt a tiny bit watery to begin with, it a lot of the roasted malts and coffee showed up. A nice undertone of hops and burnt wood ride underneath the malts. Nice.

Mouthfeel was light to medium with a good dose of carbonation.

A good porter for sure.

4.18/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

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.
