A:
Pours an opaque jet black with a 3+ finger khaki head that eventually settles to a healthy film that hugs the edges. Good retention; lots of whimsical lacing. (4)

S:
Oats and coffee. Caramelized malts, smoke, molasses, dried dark fruits, leather. (4)

T:
Roast malt and milk chocolate. Nuts, toffee, toast, coffee, smoky feel that creeps up your nose. (4.25)

M:
Medium body with a creamy/velvety feel, moderate carbonation, lingering roast sensation, very drinkable yet rich. (4.5)

O:
Very good Porter.
This is a well-made beer and has the great subtle richness that I look for in a beer like this. Like drinking liquid velvet but not suffocating or overly rich in any way.
Pours very nice and presents a pungent but fairly straightforward aroma. The beer drinks amazingly well and has stout-like flavors without being heavy, imposing or thick in any way.
Very good beer that drinks like a champ. Rich but you could easily have a couple three.
Would have again; worth keeping an eye out for. (4.25)

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.
