Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Dogfish Head Snifter glass.

A: Deep dark brown as expected. Aggressive pour leads to a half-finger light brown colored head. Lacing is consistent and plentiful.

S: Good cocoa, chocolate malts, blackberry, molasses and a touch of coffee.

T: Follows the nose with the chocolate up front. The toasted malts take a back seat and avoid the bitterness that may come along.

M: Perfectly carbonated, creamy, smooth finish.

O: Perfect porter, really. Excellent beer.
