Reviewed from notes.

A - Dark brown with a half-inch of dark tan head that quickly dissipates.

S - Chocolate malt, roasty notes, and a prominent underlying sweet aroma.

T - Roasted malt, coffee, pleasantly bitter finish. The sweetness present in the nose is not evident in the taste.

M - Full bodied, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel.

O - Very tasty porter, and a good example of the style. I'd gladly enjoy this beer again.
