Pours a deep dark brown bordering black - it allows no light through except maybe a few muddy flickers. Big foamy caramel colored head - excellent retention.

Big roasted coffee in the nose backed by dark chocolate.

Roasted coffee and chocolate pop in the mouth upfront in a strong, rich, bitter bite. Full buttery, chewy malt middle with some sweet caramel notes backed by dark fruit - fig. The strong flavors. Very creamy mouthfeel. Slightly dry oak finish. A very nice porter - lots of big flavor without being too sweet or strong.

Bottled date 01/18/13

Appearance: Pours a near black with a light tan one and 1/2 finger head. Crazy long retention. Spotty lacing throughout. Nice.

Aroma: Rich chocolate, roasted coffee grounds. Charred wood. Not much else, but the aroma is bold.

Taste: Dark roasted malts hit up front. Dry cocoa powder lends a rich chocolatey flavor. Bitter coffee and hops working together to make this quite delicious and balanced. Undertones of charred wood. Like a nice full-bodied dark roast coffee, excellent for me.

Mouthfeel: Med/full body with a perfect carbonation. Rich velvety chocolate swirls over the toungue making this a smooth easy drinking and delicious American Porter. A little dry and a little acidic on the backend but that's okay. Gone before you know it.

Overall: Simple, but does everything that it should. A benchmark in the style as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks to mhksuccess for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 10/27/12.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and some slight char aromas. Taste is much the same with a cocoa powder flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid roasty aromas and flavors.
