A-Not a lot of head--suggest splashing the beer right away to bring out the head a bit--I poured too much down the side of the glass, so this may have been my fault. The minimal head that did exist was a pleasing mocha color, but the overall lack of head was the only problem I had with this otherwise great beer. The body was rich, black, and sexy as advertised :-) Not much light will penetrate this stuff except perhaps around the edge.
S-sweet, coffee, biscuit with a nice subtle roastiness
T-wow this is a full-flavored, sweet, roasty, amazing beer. obvious flavors are chocolate and coffee with perhaps some hints raisin and biscuit. Alcohol is blended in nicely and doesn't stand out too much.
M-nice full body. average carbonation for a porter.
O-reminds me of drinking hot chocolate as a kid. nice smooth and flavorful, sweet drink. Gives you a warm feeling despite the low ABV. One of the best porters around.
