Bottle poured into a pint glass.
The appearance is lusciously deep, dark brown with a great huge off white head that lingers for a very, very long time. The head and each sip left great lacing all over the glass. Porters can't really look much better than this. The aroma is chocolate, cola, nuts, and more chocolate like cocoa powder riding the tail. The taste is nice and chocolatey with hints of roasted and burnt tones towards the end of the sip. The aftertaste comes on a bit bitter and balances out the burnt character extremely well. The flavor also has a less sweet Coca-Cola likeness to it. The MF is smooth, creamy, and ever so perfect for the taste.
This is a top notch American Porter. Porter, especially robust porter, being one of my favorite styles, I could drink this beer anytime, anywhere, and I will certainly buy it sometime. My friend gave me this bottle, so I thank him for that.
