Black as the night, with a medium heavy tan head
Malt, coffee beans, toffee, lots of roast character
WOW! Huge burst of flavor, coffee beans, espresso, chocolate, heavily roasted malt, large mouthfeel yet drinkable
Get one!! One of my favorite porters ever.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to pint glass
A - Rick dark cocoa-colored body with a foamy latte head.
S - Ridiculously roasty - tobacco, molasses, and espresso. Just a hint of ripe fruit esters.
T - The roasted malt notes are immediate and enveloping - think a decadent dark double chocolate chip cookie. A touch of dark roast coffee in there, too. The finish has a dash of piney bitterness from the hops and some fruity esters.
M - Velvety and creamy, cut a bit thin feeling on the finish. The carbonation is lively but not overwhelming.
O - A fantastic porter. The best New England example of an American-style porter I have had to date. Founders Porter and Deschutes Black Butte probably are a hair better, but damn, if this isn't a great beer.

Best by 10/01/14 at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate
Head large (5.5cm), light brown, fizzy/frothy, rapidly diminishing 3 mm ring
Lacing excellent - thick layer covering inside of glass
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor of bitter roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some coffee; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Ends rapidly leaving a slight bitterness behind.
Palate medium, creamy, lively carbonation
A decent porter lacking the fruity esters and hop bitterness.
