Poured unto a pint. Served again this time in a snifter.

Appearance: Pours an opaque black, head comes off thick roughly 2 fingers length light tan.

Smell: This is not a the strongest aroma you would like, does it smell great absolutely, why don I rate it higher?, because it comes off slightly quick almost too quick.

Taste: comes off chocolately, not too heavy but feels like coffee is in the mix. After another sip....yes absolutely coffee is in the mix. Comes off strong but not on the alcohol side just pure flavor.

Mouth: Medium to heavy carbonation, very easy to drink for the real beer drinker in you.

Overall: Well put together beer, full of incredible flavor and might be slightly complex but not to the point that you don't know what it is. Definitely a keeper in your fridge and pound for pound one of the best porters I have had....drink with love and enjoy, Salud!

12oz bottle with a Bottled Date of 02/10/12. Pours a rich black color wnith virtually no head. Very minimal lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malts, earth and coffee. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, earth, roasted malts and smoke. Rich. Dark chocolate and roasted malt finish. Chewy mouthfeel. Overall this is a well-crafted porter. Worth having again.
