Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Although I've had this one many times, first time for a review.
A- Pours a very dark ruby, opaque except in front of a strong light. Nice 1" head which quickly fades. Very good sheet lacing throughout glass.
S- Very pronounced sweet chocolate aroma dominates. Some raison/licorice also is there. Very pleasant.
T- Really good balanced flavor. Surprisingly little chocolate given the smell. Malt and hops share the stage, with malt winning out slightly in the finish.
MF- Very good feel; rounded and smooth; almost silky.
D- Definitely a session porter. Very balanced and easy going down. One of the better American Porters I have had.
