Dark brown color. About one finger thick tan colored head that quickly disappears into almost nothing. Moderate number of bubbles. Clear in the glass. Almost non-existent lacing.
Aroma: Very porter like. Reminded me of Guinness draught (extra stout). Roasted malts, somewhat burnt. Strong malt and low hop presence in the nose.
Sweet malt with some after taste roasted, burnt flavor. Slight hop presence provides some balance. Semi-dry finish.
Mouth feel :Medium bodied. Slightly high carbonation leads to some astringency. Drinks very much like a porter.
Blind tasting would certainly have me failed. It is an out and out porter for me.
Note: Towards the end it felt more like a brown ale than a porter.

Sampled tonight on 6/26/14. Found this bottle in the back of the cooler so it is a good year old I am guess BUT there isn't a expiration date anyone on the bottle and this brew is now RETIRED and no longer brewed. But opened it and it was fine. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 14 ounce glass 'Texas style " boot.
Pours a clear dark brown in color with a good 3-finger off-white head! Good carbonation with some sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is of roasted malts, hazel nut and brown sugar. Very nice! The taste is close to the aroma but not as strong BUT pretty good overall with all the flavors mentioned above coming through lots of the hazelnut 'nut' flavor in the mix. A slight dry smoke finish but still good.
