Poured from a bottle into a tulip snifter.

A: dark dark brown, pretty well black. Huge three finger head, Tight tan to light brown with tight small bubbles. Clear as black can be. Head dissipated slowly, lasts and stops at about a finger.
S: dark fruit, some coffee, chocolate. Very toastyand roasty but not burnt.
T: Classic porter....a bit tart with huge roasty flavors. Slight vanilla. Dark plum. Some stickiness and very slight sweetness in the finish.
M: full rich mouthfeel, borderline light cream. Medium carbonation. Long last to the finish.
O: not a huge porter fan, but this is very nice. Medium to low on the sticky-sweet-tartness that I'm not a fan of in most porters. Highly recommended.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

16.9 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a near-black with a huge three-finger tan head. Pretty heavy lacing left behind.

Aroma: Cocoa, coffee with milk, vanilla, faint licorice, less-faint dark fruits.

Taste: Wow, this is a flavorful porter. I love this style, so I'm probably biased in its favor, but this strikes me as an excellent beer. The coffee, cocoa and vanilla flavors are all present up front, with some dark fruit and hop bitterness in the background. Some nice booze burn on the way down. This beer has everything I want out of a "big" dark beer. Lots of flavor and depth.

Mouthfeel: This beer is a sturdy porter, but it's far from thick and sludgy. Approachable for a fairly hefty dark beer. Velvet smooth, too.

Overall: Terrific beer from a great brewery. My favorite of their stable so far.
