A- This beer pored out dark as motor oil and is dark as night except on the edges while held up to the light, which revealed a small amount of red. It poured out a small half finger head that looks creamy and has tinny little bubbles that dissipated rather quickly. Nice looking beer but wish the head was bigger and retained longer.
S- I can smell this beer from a few feet away. This one is really roasty and rich smelling. When the beer is swirled it releases a more creamy toffee smell that is soft on the nose. I get a slight black coffee smell followed by a real faint chocolate. Very nice smelling beer.
T- First thing I noticed is the nice dark malt flavor of the beer. Followed by a roastyness and a nice bitterness. I get a good amount of leftover flavor on my tongue that reminds me of a really dark coffee. There is a nice toffee note in the background to the roasted quality of this beer. Well done.
M- Nice medium bodied beer that is really smooth. Carbonation is right on for this one. It dries my mouth out on the finish. Makes me want to take another sip right away. The body of this beer is what reminds me of a porter. Tends to be thinner then a typical stout.
O- This is an excellent porter. I love the roasted quality along with how rich and smooth it is. I typically do not grab porters but this one will definitely be a regular in my fridge. Excellent beer!

A: Very dark brown with very little head and alomst no lacing
S: Like a roasty/burnt chocolate with a bit of coffee
T: It's a light dark beer. Pretty good, has an initial hop taste to it quickly followed by a burnt chocolate kind of taste, and leaves a nice chocolaty taste on the tongue. One of the best aftertastes of any beer. It's a light dark beer.
M: Much lighter then I expected
