Poured from a bottle into a Samuel Adams glass renders a 2 " chocolate malt head that lasts a couple of minutes. Smell is like black coffee, then chocolate. Mouth feel is balanced with a slight alcohol presence, not overpowering. Taste follows smell, a little bitterness that dissipates. Over all an excellent porter that I will enjoy again.

12oz bottle poured into a dimpled Guinness mug. Pours deep dark brown, nearly black. Nice tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Coffee/chocolate/caramel in the nose and palate. Nice roasty, bitter finish. Very thick, rich, velvety mouthfeel. Tiny bit of alcohol warmth. Very nice stuff all around, I'll have another!
