Poured a dark brown color, with a soft caramel colored head forms on top. That laces slowly down to a eighth of an inch and staying there for some time. A roasty aroma at the front, with dark chocolate and sweet maltiness, with a touch of coffee. The roasted malt hits the palate at first taste, with amild coffee taste. That is followed by a grassy bitterness and slight tobbaco flavor. arich full bodied feel, and it smoothly rolls across the palate. The backend finishes dry, but not to overbearing. This is a really good porter, a great flavor and hearty, rich mouthfeel, along with an intising aroma, make this porter to desire year around.

Very heavy chocolate smell and taste which is true to this beer's style. Seemed overcarbonated for a porter though which detracted from this beer's great taste and smell. Would recommend to anyone who was looking for a good porter of the chocolate persuasion. Fine beer from a pretty good brewery.
