A: Very, very dark. Almost black. Just barely shy of looking like a stout. Thick, rich 2 finger tan head.
S: Dark roasted malts. Chocolate. Coffee. Roasted nuts. Decadent. Love the aroma.
T: Much like the nose. Dark roasted malts, chocolate, hint of coffee. Great balance between sweet and bitter. In my opinion, while FBS still reigns supreme over the Porter, this one is a great substitute as far as flavor profile goes. Also, it's a little more sessionable with the lower ABV.
M: Very drinkable. Smooth. Perfect carbonation. As I said before, I could have a number of these in one sitting without problem.
Overall, this is really an awesome beer and one that I will seek out again and again (every time I go to Atlanta since I can't get it in TN). Definitely recommended.
