Had this on tap at Liberty Street in Allentown where the menu description reads simply "dark, rich and sexy." That's pretty accurate, but I will attempt to provide a few more details.
It's certainly dark - like semi-sweet chocolate with a half finger of head that does not stick around very long.
It's rich (in taste, at least). Surprisingly, the nose on this one is rather bland. The body, however, is thick and delicious. Those who erroneously refer to Draught Guinness as a "meal" in itself would probably think that this is a five-course dinner!
There are also solid roasty notes particularly on the finish. The roasted bitterness lasts long after each sip goes down.
It's sexy... well, it's certainly at least a touch smokey. I caught a faint note of smoke as I neared the bottom of the glass.
Let's just say that it is one of the best porters out there.

A- Pours thick, but an aggressive pour yields a lot of tan head. Deep black.
S- Roast, a little fruity notes. Roast comes out more as it warms.
T- Roast, some tangy hops, more roast. Delicious and what I expect in a porter.
M- Not to thick, not too light. My standard for the style.
O- My favorite porter. Very affordable, very available, very easy-drinking, very rich and flavorful. Cheers

4.34/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Bottled 5/16/2014 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of roasted malt
Head average (4 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing good – broken wide rings with small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with roasted malt bitterness, slowly changing to a light chocolaty sweetness; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, lively carbonation
A very good porter, a little up the spectrum toward stouts.
