Picked up a 32oz growler of this last week at whole foods in downtown nyc (in fliptop growler). Poured into ommegang tulip.
A - Poured a nice dark almost black, deep reddish brown. Had a thin cream colored head that evaporated pretty quickly.
S - Roasted malts with toffee and caramel. Hints of coffee with a soft sweet background. Really nice balance. Not as overpowering in the roasted or coffee direction like a lot of the other Porters you see a lot of these days. Seems like the sweetness in the background mellows it out a bit. Really nice smelling beer.
T - Watered down a bit for my tastes, but all malts in the flavor. Some of the nose can be tasted in the flavor, but more in the background. Malt for days. Pretty bitter too.
M - Little watery. Leaves a really dry after feel. As it opened up and warmed, it felt a lot more even, but had a bit of a sour feeling.
D - Overall pretty easy drinker. Not a bad porter, but a bit on the watery and bitter side for my tastes. Good one for the style and worth a try for Porter fans.
