A- Pours thick, but an aggressive pour yields a lot of tan head. Deep black.

S- Roast, a little fruity notes. Roast comes out more as it warms.

T- Roast, some tangy hops, more roast. Delicious and what I expect in a porter.

M- Not to thick, not too light. My standard for the style.

O- My favorite porter. Very affordable, very available, very easy-drinking, very rich and flavorful. Cheers

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 5/16/2014 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of roasted malt
Head average (4 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing good – broken wide rings with small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with roasted malt bitterness, slowly changing to a light chocolaty sweetness; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, lively carbonation

A very good porter, a little up the spectrum toward stouts.
