Served in a duvel tulip glass. Poured this right down the center which yields a 1 finger mocha brown head that dissipates to a ring around the edges. Aroma is massive with strong dark chocolate, faint black coffee, smoke/char, and maybe some caramel as well. Taste starts out with a smack of dark chocolate and roasty malts followed by a lingering char and dark chocolate bitterness mixed with a hint of hops on the backend. Massive mouthfeel, very chewy, and smooth as silk.

Its a style I haven't had much of, but that being the case Its probably one of the best porters around.
