Pours a dark brown from the bottle with a small foamy head that dissipates reasonable quickly. Aroma is chocolate with coffee. Chocolate, coffee and malt are pretty balance, with only a bit of bitterness. Medium mouth with a decent amount of carbonation. Not a bad porter at all.

4.16/5 rDev +5.3%
Appearance: Pours a pitch black color capped by a couple of inches of beige foam; the retention and lacing were decent but not spectacular
Smell: Black bread and chocolate; walnuts and a hint of dried dark fruit
Taste: Roasty charred black bread, up front, with chocolate flavors building into the middle; walnuts and raisins join, after the swallow, as do the earthy hops that keep the sweetness in check; well-balanced in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: This is a first class Porter; not quite Edmund Fitz, but very close
Thanks, BlueOkie, for the opportunity

A - poured very deep brown/red, very little carbonation. Looked quite flat.
S - Sweet hops, caramel and coffee. very pleasant
T - Coffee and roasted malt, strong smokey hops and dark chocolate, with a lingering espresso taste
M - thinner than i expected, very very little carbonation
O - Overall the taste and smell were very nice and well balanced. From a porter I expected a somewhat thicker mouthfeel, and maybe a bit more carbonation. But I would drink one again, gladly.

Poured into a New Belgium globe.
The beer is as black as new tires with brown barely coming through on the edges. A mocha colored head recedes to a film with a thicker patch in the center. Webbed lacing coats the glass.
The beer first smells of burnt, roasted malts. Then roasted coffee notes come in, as well as a faint smokiness and some black licorice on the back end.
The taste starts with bitter roasted malts. Then a really dark rich coffee flavor kicks in. It has some Oreo cookie richness in it, dark chocolates. There's faint smokiness and bitter hops in the finish.
Mouthfeel is dry and lively.
Overall, really impressed with the coffee and bitter chocolate notes on this. A great porter to take your time with and enjoy.

Poured the beer into a standard pint glass. After I drank it I came to the conclusion that a snifter would be a better choice of glassware to highlight this beer strong features.
A- poured ruby red and turns pretty much pitch black in the glass. There is very little head initially and it quickly disapeared. There is no carbonation and this translates to a very flat unappealing beer. Almost looks like a glass of dark red wine.
S- It smells substantially better than it looks. A pleasent dark chocolate aroma up front followed by rosted malts and coffee. Very pleasant.
T- Very intense flavors of dark chocolate and roasted malts with some dark fruit on the end. Very balance flavors and hardly any hint of the alchohal.
M- Very light almost watery feel. Simmilar to drinking a glass of win or juice.
O- I took one look at this beer and thought I would hate it but overall I enjoyed drinking this beer and would enjoy it again in a heartbeat. Dispite its unappealing appearance this beer taste really good and is very easy to drink. It would be an excellant entry level beer for someone new to stouts and porters. This beer reminds me of an ex girlfriend I once had. She is not sexy but knows how to satisfy.
