Appearance - Black and opaque in color. Has a heavy head which diminishes in a few minutes leaving a nice lacing.

Smell - Smokey molasses aroma.

Taste - Light hops and molasses taste.

Mouthfeel - Full bodied, light carbonation, hint of bitterness.

Overall - It's full body, smokey, and not too bitter flavor make for a satisfying and easy to drink porter. I highly recommend this beer!

Another brew Kevin hooked up in our trade, thanks man! Poured from unstamped bottle to mug the beer pours an oily viscous opaque black with a 1 finger mocha colored head with good retention and lacing throughout. The nose is an impressive blast of rich coffee, cocoa, roast. Terrific. If I didn't know better I'd say this is a stout. More character than any non-imperial porter I've sampled. Awesome. The flavor follows suit with again tons of coffee, roast, cocoa along with a mild bitterness, and hint of caramel and nut. Unbelievably smooth. Creamy. I can't believe how much flavor is packed into this brew, no hint of alcohol but with so much going on I'd think this was a much bigger beer to accommodate the character. Medium bodied. Well carbonated. To say this is a treat is an understatement. New standard for me.
