A: Dark black with no head. a light tan coats the edges of the glass.
S: ROAST! light semi sweet dark chocolate with coffee beans and brown sugar. A little touch of burnt toast.
T: Sweet milk chocolate with a very earthy hop. Vanilla, roast and big bold coffee. Sweet toffee finishes this bad boy off. A little touch of bitterness.
M: Surprisingly light, very smooth.
O: This is a very tastey beer. Nothing outstanding, just solid all around / 88

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle I found at Capone's in Norristown. Unfiltered with clumps of brown solids in bottom after pour. Near black color with substantial brown head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is mellow chocolate, rummy dark fruit and vanilla. Initial taste is dark fruit rum which is quickly overshadowed by sweet chocolate with coffee, caramel , vanilla and molasses notes. The hops are not apparent but rather bringing balance to the force of the malt in perfect balance. There is a long chocolate aftertaste that persists for a long time, seemingly forever. This is a delicious porter that does not assault the taste buds and is truly silky as the name implies.
