I am still not 100% sure on how to rate porters, especially with the newer black IPA style. Before getting into the review, in my mind, this tends towards a black IPA.

A: it was a darker bar I tried this in, but pretty black with decent foamy head on the sides, returning in force with a swirl. Slight lack of lacing.
S: sorry for lack of detail here, but... black IPA
T: lack of malt depth, but not so much so to be out of balance with the hops. A roasty, unsweet, coffee-bitter type beer that doesn't offend.
M: just a little light, I think. Carbonation is good, though.
O: I think I produced a comparable beer in feel, maybe close in taste. Granted, I was shooting for a stout.
