22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottled on 8/16. Consumed on 10/27. Written from notes.
A - Dark brown with purplish hue. Moderate poured yielded 1.5 fingers of light tan frothy head. Lasting head. High carbonation. Could see carbonation streaming up sides of glass despite dark color.
S- Not overly fragrant. Hints of roasted coffee and vanilla.
T - Roasted malts, toffee, coffee, with a slight tartness and a soapy bitter finish.
M - High carbonation and lightly bodied. Somewhat sticky.
O - Somewhat dull. Not overly fragrant and soapy flavor in taste not very appealing. Too thin. Too many good porters and stouts out there to have this again.
