Poured into a snifter from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a ruddy blackish brown with a light brown head that provides ample lacing.
In the nose is chocolate, moderate espresso.
The flavor follows the nose, a nice roasted malt character hints of smoke and coffee. Chocolate sweetness is just under the radar, and the earthy hop is there providing residual bitterness. Imagine waking up and eating oreos with your coffee and cigar, in liquid form.
Mouthfeel is superb. High carbonation with a smooth drying finish. Crisp on the palate, and is actually not as heavy as I would expect.
Drinkability is very good as well. A very tasty porter here that may be the benchmark for the style. I would reccommend buying a case of this lovely beer.
