Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Stemmed glass, jet black with almost no head. Smell of chocolate and coffee with a touch of dark fruit, taste was coffee and wood as in barrel aged brews. The depth of flavors ranged from bitter coffee and dark chocolate to a smoke and wood aged pit fruit..date or fig like. Mouthfeel was a tad heavy for a standard Porter but right on spot for this offering, I like the brand and I like Porters and Stouts...a lot...all in all I enjoyed this brew and would pick it up again....winner!

12oz bottle served in a beer mug.

Black brew with as little head as I got in junior high. Aroma and taste are chock full of roasty coffee and chocolate with espresso coffee bitterness on the finish. Drinkability and mouthfeel are excellent. Not as "dark / rich & sexy" as Diana Ross in her prime but that old time lady on the label does a fine job for me.
