Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Guinness pint glass.
A: Pours a translucent dark brown with a thin brown head that fades quickly. Medium visible carbonation.
S: Richly toasted malts, spices, and a bit of sweetness.
T: Roasted maltiness up front that fades into jasmine, honey sweetness, and a flowery and green vegetal flavor that lasts into the hang.
M: The body is on thin side for a porter. Moderate carbonation sensation and alcohol presence.
O: This really didn't do it for me. It's not awful, but nothing that I'd repeat. Tick and move on.

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.
