A nice dark brown body. Almost no head on mine, probably because it was poured from the tap by a waitress? Who knows.
I detect a malty, bread type of odor coupled with some sweet, fruitiness.
Up front sugary sweetness with notes of fruit and caramel, followed with some big earthy, bready, malty flavors. Finishes with a coffee type of taste/aftertaste.
Really a good mouthfeel. Well carbonated and balanced for its sweetness.
A little sweet and a little thick for me to drink too many, but an interesting brew that is worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of June 2014. Sampled on December 7, 2013.
It is mainly brown in color with a modest off-white head that lingers briefly. Moderate lacing.
The aroma is Shipyard's Ringwood yeasts and then everything else. The everything else includes dark caramel malts but little to no hop or spice note (for a Winter).
The body is light to medium but overall very smooth.
The taste has a mild sweetness at first followed by a low bitterness. This does not have the coffee esters one comes to expect from today's Porter's but I bet this is the way the English brewed it way back when.
