Pours black as night from the 12oz bottle into the usual tulip. No head whatsoever, hardly any lacing. Weird. Might be a glass wash/rinse issue on my end.
Smell holds a lot chocolate with plenty of coffee. Very aromatic and inviting. As it warms the coffee takes over the chocolate, in a good way.
The flavor is almost all chocolate. Milk chocolate and dark bitter chocolate both present. Some coffee mixes in nicely, as well as some caramel on the finish. Very full flavored, but easily palatable.
A full bodied beer for sure, with just enough carbonation. Nice and slick in your mouth with a fairly sweet finish. Flavor lingers for a while. One of the best porters I've had, too bad I only have the one.
