Pours a dark chocolate color into a pint glass and formed a half inch cocoa-colored head that dissipated over a few seconds.

Smells artificially smokey with some malt hints.

Tastes kinda acrid in it's bitterness with the smokey flavor coming on a little too strong for my tastes.

Crisp yet heavy feeling as it swishes around the palate.

I don't care much for the taste of this one, really smokey and bitter but not in a subtle way.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Dark almost black with one-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a few minutes and left a nice film. Pretty good lacing.

S: Coffee, bittersweet chocolate.

T: Moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. Roasted malt, chocolate, and milk.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Smooth and slightly warm going down.

O: Nice drinkable porter for the cold months. Nose was weak, but other than that, pretty good.
