A - Pours dark, almost black. Slight hints of light make it through when held up to the light. Produced two fingers of head that lasted approx. 3 min before dissipating. Some lacing at the top of the glass. Head is a light brown creamy color with good scents.

S - Lightly sweet, woodsy smell. Scents of chocolate and wood dominate the bouquet.

T - Similar to the scents, bitter chocolate dominates. The flavor starts strong, but dissipates quickly, little to no bite (but more so than other porters I've had) flavor and a taste of coffee remains at the end.

M - Medium to thin bodied, the beer starts thick, but doesn't stick around long before leaving the tastes permeating the entire mouth. Slightly creamy, but lacking in textual footprint.

O - One of my favorite porters ever. The flavors are more dominate in this porter than in others and the lingering flavors/smells make it an excellent choice.
