12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Enjoy by Mar 21 2013.
A: Pours a darkish brown appearing black in the glass with a 1/2 finger light khaki head. Light is able to penetrate through the sides of the glass when held up to the light. Lacing is above average.
S: Not a good sign when my first whiff makes me question freshness, and upon question appears to be a few days past its prime. Fermented fruits and coffee grounds seem to dominate. Hints of chocolate and vanilla in the sweetness. Metallic tones set it off in the wrong direction.
T: Has a decent flavor to it, a smooth blend of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Non offensive middle of the road porter.
M: Just a bit on the watery side for a porter. Pretty easy drinking just feels a little thin.
Overall I can only imagine how tasty this would of been in 1975 when the recipe was developed. Has since fallen a few paces behind the crowd but is still a pleasant drinking experience.
