I will start by saying that I can not imagine a better example of the style. Poured into a porter glass, incredibly dark brown/black, faintly red on the edges where light can pass through. Creamy tan head, great retention and lacing. Massive roasted smell some coffee grinds, chocolate and toffee. Faint burned popcorn as well. Smooth on the tongue with the roasty dryness dominating the front, then sweetens out with the chocolate and toffee notes, then back to dry coffee like finish. Some alcohol warming as you get deep into this. New favorite porter.

A standalone in category:

This probably the best porter I've ever had.

A- Black with a big, brown pillowy head

S- Roast, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, slight wood

T- Is spot on with the smell and sweet. These guys have it right. It's so rich and perfectly balanced.

M- Smooth and creamy, very full-bodied.

O- Just buy it. If you like the style, you'll love it. If you like beer, you'll love it. If you don't like it, you'll like Miller Lite.
