Bottled 09/17/2012:

Into a pint glass:

A: black colored body leaves a two finger tan/off white head that dies to a film within a minute.

S: coffee up front with strong side notes of chocolate and even as the beer warms up more some light vanilla comes out.

T: all of these previously mentioned flavors and becomes bitter and sweet in different ways.

M: light and smooth, really creamy. Since the ABV is moderate -I`d say this is sesessionable

O: I'm mostly impressed in this for its style and for me. I'd come back to this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nice dark motor oil, small off white head quickly dissipates.

Smell: lots of coffee, dark cocoa and dark toasted malt aroma. I'm getting some vanilla as well.

Taste: taste has coffee, dark chocolate caramel, and bitterness of the malts used. taste a lot like a the breakfast stout with less coffee.

Mouthfeel: mouth feels a bit heavier, more full-bodied than other porters. Its creamy and has a little bit of tanginess to it. Not getting the bozziness as it a 6.5 abv but its well hidden.

Overall: Good porter.
