Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #47 (Dec 2010):
Thick beading of tiny bubbles produces an amazing-looking head and sticky lacing; pitch-black color is saying it's a serious beer as well. Slightly burnt biscuit aroma is quickly followed by a sweeter mocha tone. A welcome hefty body here with just enough bubbles to get by. Slightly burnt choco maltiness has a firm grip on the taste buds. Hops give a quick sting of bitterness and an earthy flavor in the middle. Roastiness is well flexed and shows its range, from faint, smoky, charred wood to bitter dark chocolate to over-toasted bread. Some yeast and fruit in the end as well, as a sweetness lifts from the ashes. This Porter means business--one of the best robust Porters around.
