A: Pours black...or close to it. Perhaps a very very dark brown. Small fizzy light brown head. Head fades out quickly but sticks around quite well, oddly enough. Small smattering of lacing.
S: Flowery, very much so. Smells like lavender and jasmine. Some sweet chocolate in there.
T: Again with the flowers up front. Spicy and floral. Very floral. Borderline lavender soap at times. Luckily there is a decent chocolatey roasted malt backing it up and keeps it from being too floral. More spiciness (jasmine I assume) and flowers in the aftertaste.
M: Medium-heavy and smooth.
O: A flowery porter. Certainly a unique brew, can't say I've ever had anything like this before. Not a big fan of flowers in my beer but it's certainly a pretty good brew overall. Not too overpowering but definitely strong and spicy. Not something I'd pick up again but a worthwhile experiment to try.

A- Pours a nice inky black, with noticeable bubbles up the sides. Decent head, light lacing on the sides and a light coating over the top 10m later.
S- Very soft at this point, roasted malts, dark chocolates, I cant smell much flowers/jasmine/honey in the glass, but Im defiantly picking it up from the bottle, everything smells pretty good.
T- The roasted malts and chocolates up front as a porter should be, next you get the sweeter side probably the honey and finishes with a slightly bitter dry feeling. Again pretty good.
M- medium to full body, has a decent thick, chewy feeling while still retaining a slippery smoothness over the tongue.
O- When I first opend it I had a hard time picking up the smell, maybe cause its been cellaring since I got it last year. After it aired out some, everything came togather nicely. The carbonation wasn't noticeable while drinking. They did a really good job with this, glad i have 3 more downstairs.
