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.

A - Just about jet black. Poured looking like oil or syrup. Thin, non-persistent dark tan head and quickly fading lace
S - Sweet and roasted nut. Maybe some spice somewhere in there. Some coffee notes as well.
T - Pretty good. Taste like a good dark chocolate mixed with roasted...something. I don't want to say roasted nut again but pretty much. Starts off as a burst of dark chocolate and finishes nice and bitter. Burnt dark chocolate is the best way I can describe it.
M - Not much to say. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Pretty drinkable.
O - Overall this is a good porter. A tad bit too bitter for my liking, but still real good. Reminds me very much of Guinness Extra Stout.

Pours black with a nice mocha head. Aroma is a touch smokey, extremely roasty giving offf some nice chocolate and coffee tones. Flavor is a touch smokey as well, wonderfully roasty with some great dark chocolate and coffee and a touch of char, and a nice intrusion of some bitterness from some hops in the finish. A creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, an absolutely fantastic porter here. Just as good, just different, from my favorite porter, Odell's Cutthroat Porter. Loved it, will absolutely be drinking lots more of this one.
