A very interesting beer. I spent about a half hour trying to decide on a new beer just by reading their descriptions and overall characteristics. Staff at Stan's in Athol, Massachusetts were very helpful.
A: Dark. very dark brown with a thin head.
S: Legit...by that, I mean it gives you a very good idea of what you're about to taste, leading me to -
T: very good porter...very good. Not my favorite style of beer in the world, but if i'm ever going to suggest a porter, it's this one for now. The flavor just erupts from it and leaves you wanting another sip as soon as you put it down. Not my favorite after-taste in the world though, which is why i give a 4.5.
M: crisp carbonated mouthfeel that isn't overwhelming at all, but lasts until you swallow.
D: if you are looking for a filling beer to have one or two of, this would get a 5, but i'm not a fan of feeling full after 1 beer, so i'll have to dock this one a little for me.

3.96/5 rDev -6.8%

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.
