12 oz. Bottle poured into my Duvel tulip. 2011 Vintage.

Appearance: Very dark brown almost black. Appears almost identical to the breakfast stout. Very little head, both initially and throughout, recedes to tan ring.

Smell: Dark roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee.

Taste: Almost like a "breakfast stout light", same mocha flavors, the bitterness comes mostly from the roasted malt.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, creamy, more body than other porters I have had.

Overall: Very flavorful beer, really nice 6.5% ABV alternative to RIS’s with their higher ABV. Another solid offering from an excellent brewery.
