A high quality, toasty porter. I taste licorice, which I do not usually like, but when it is combined with the malty, roasted taste, it all comes together very well. I can see why this beer is award winning; it is definitely one of the greater porters I have had.

Bottle poured into a regular pint glass.

This has all the flavors I expect form a porter... because it's a porter.

This is a really easy to drink beer. I don't think of Porter being session type beers, but this one almost seems like it could be. Nothing is overpowering anything else.

I think it's really good and I'm going to be looking to pick up a six pack of this soon.

Lightly chilled 22 oz. bomber into a 12 oz stemless tulip. No visible bottling date.

Look- Brown-ruby brown, transparent. Three fingers of loose head, dissipates after a minute or so.

Smell- Nougaty, intensely malty, sweet. Smells like malta or similar.

Taste- What do you know, it tastes like malta as well. Not as sweet as expected, maple, toasty, nutty, cola-like. Mild hop bitterness, leafy character comes out towards the end. Light roasty finish, almost charred, aftertaste is mineral but subtle.

Mouthfeel- Prickly carbonation despite a vigorous pour, still comes off as fairly smooth. Body average for the style.

Overall- Well executed but nothing special. I could take it or leave it.
