This beer pours a near black tint of dark red. when held up to light you can see the red shining through. While this may be a tad bit lighter, just a tad bit, than the other porters i have had, it is still very dark.
the smell was very nice, roasted malts as to be expected, hints of caramel and coffee, but also i picked up a quite noticeable hop aroma as well. it was faint to me but it was noticeably there.
the taste was not entirely what i expected. It had everything that i smelled but in different doses. there was roasted malt and caramel flavor, but the hops tasted much more heavily than i would have guessed. I mean this is not a totally hoppy beer, but for a porter the hops are defanatley more pronounced to me. This is a very balanced beer.
this beer is also very drinkable, and would make a could session brew
