This was in 12oz bottles this year.
A ~ Pours black with a burgundy hue. Carb is extremely fine
Lacing is spotty & uniform, but doesn't stick around for too long.
Definitely looks the part of the porter.
S ~ Espresso beans/Dark Roast beans with Raisins & Dates close behind..Dark Bread with butter...vanilla ice cream...Touches of red grapes & wood chips/general earthiness.
T ~ Dates follow through with major bittersweet chocolate notes. Notes of caramel & coffee mid palette. On the finish is heavily toasted bread with touches of peppery hops.
M ~ Strappingly dry & medium bodied with a large amount of hops. Very roasty, but really not as sharp as most American Porters. Lacking in Astringency.
D ~ Well hopped & very balanced for the ABV. Marshall was very smart to put this classic in 12oz bottles. Enjoy it on many a fireside evening. Cheers to Marshall for killin' it.

First beer from this brewery, thanks to furealz (Reddit).
A very aggressive pour still only yields a small fizzy mocha colored head that fades at a med pace, head looks like a 9-10% abv kinda beer, touches of lacing, over a dark almost pitch black beer that lets a bit of mahogany light through the thin parts.
NOse is about what I expected, some darker malts, little cocoa and dusty chocolate powder, a couple layers of caramel, mild earthiness and touches of earthy hop, bit of fluffy chocolate nougat and caramel candy bar like, touch of minerality and hint of coffee.
Taste starts with more dark malts, hint of roasted black malt but not really burnt or roasty, dry cocoa mix and chocolate malt, little biscuity dark malt that eventually turns to a little char, more varying caramel flavors, light and dark, with a bit more fluffy chocolate nougat, but not sweet at all. More earthy hops kick in with a little chewy hop and fair bitterness. Finish is again very dry as the entire beer was, mild roasty flavor lingering with some earthy hops, more dried cocoa, and little caramel, spicy hops start to take over later on the finish and get fairly bitter.
Mouth is med to fuller bod with a very dry feel, nice fluffy carb.
Overall not bad, a decent porter that doesn't really do anything wrong, maybe just a bit too dry overall, but still enjoyable.
