A 12 ounce bottle from inlimbo77, poured into the DFH signature glass he also sent. Thanks Bill!
Pours a nice black that, in thinner spots of the stream, appear a deep, coffee brown color. A tiny layer of tan bubbles constitute the head. The smell is of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and a touch of vanilla and caramel. Faint date also pokes through. One immediately tastes the roasted malts, which along with the hops, give this beer an almost rich/bitter start. It fades away revealing some dark fruits, caramel, vanilla, some coffee ground, and finally a blast of cocoa. Very well done. The mouth is very rich, medium in body, and finishes rather dry; carbonation levels seem fine. Overall, a great porter that is certainly worth having more than once!
