A - Thick head, over an inch that is brown with big bubbles. Head dissipates slowly. Completely opaque with a reddish tint near the edges.

S - Malt, prunes, chocolate

T - Dark sweet fruits at the front. Chocolate in the middle. A mild hoppy bitter finish. No strong alcohol taste.

M - Minimal alcohol and carbonation burn.

O - A solidly good beer, but nothing exciting. Does what it needs to as a porter. Not too bitter, with a nice taste.

This is a delicious Porter. Very dark, robust and full of flavor. I will be drinking this again.

I'm not a Porter fan (for the most part) but I am a big fan of this beer! It has a tremendous bold flavor and the color and smell of this beer are full of flavor as well.

This is definitely NOT a porter. Its a nice beer but I would classify it as an Imperial Stout. Very rich malt, sweet, roastiness, coffee.
