22oz bomber. tasted from Sam Adams pint glass.

A: Dark brown mahogany with tan/coffee head. Head doesn't linger long but lace does.

S: chocolate malt, roast coffee. peat smoke, but subtle

T: great. some chocolate (reminds me of Lindt 70%) malty with no hop detectable. I detect a hint of dark caramel

M med-full body smooth and a bit creamy. a nice smoky aftertaste. light smokiness not bonfire-like

D: a very nice porter. pour me another.

22 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown color with a 2 finger light tan head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some slight lacing sticks to the glass as well. Aromas of caramel roasted malt, some chocolate, and smoke. Aromas are pretty standard for a porter with some good strength as well. Taste of caramel, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, with some smoke and nutty flavor as well. Decent amount of bitterness on the finish that lingers with coffee, chocolate, and smokey flavors for a bit. Medium carbonation and body. No alcohol noticed in the taste or finish. A decent amount of creaminess is also present, with very smooth drinkability and great flavor balance. Overall, a very nice porter, didn’t blow me away but this is an all around solid brew. Very tasty stuff.

A - Just a little lighter than pure midnight black. A little bit of a reddish hue if you bring the lip of the glass up to the light.

S - Nothing really special here. It smells like a porter... standard notes of coffee, tobacco, and a little bit of smoke.

T - This is where this beer really shines. It's smoky malts dominate the overall profile. Good cocoa, smoke, leather, and all of the tastes one looks for in the Porter style.

M - A little thinner than I prefer, but on par with what's expected. Decent carbonation, and a chewiness that rounds it out nicely.

O - A very good every-occasion porter. It'd be a good way to get someone to graduate past Guinness and into the land of heavier stouts.
