Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a snifter.
With a fairly aggressive pour, there is a nice, tightly wound mocha brown cap. The head retains nicely and leaves some nice spotty lace all over the glass.
The aroma and flavor are both very smooth. Dark roasted malt contains dark semi-sweet chocolate and creamy espresso flavor with no smokey or burnt character. The flavor starts with that malt, and the malt and chocolate linger through the middle of the flavor, ending with a semi-sweet creamy espresso note. There is a soft spicy pine hop note right at the end.
The mouthfeel is worth noting separately. The flavors integrate well with the smooth body and creamy carbonation.
I haven't been impressed with the Hill Farmstead beers I have had so far, but this was very impressive. At this point I would say it is one of the best porters I have had.

Dark brown/black pour with head reducing to ring of lacing. Sweet, roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, a hint of dark fruit and slightly tart. Finishes with some bitter hop presence. The balance of sweetness, bitterness, tartness and richness of flavor pushes my buttons in the right way. Creamy, viscous and oily mouthfeel but not thick. Very easy drinking. A fine fine porter and an awesome beer. Love it.

Friend picked this up at the brewery for me. Poured from 750ml growler into tulip glass. Thin caramel-colored head quickly dissipated. Smell was subtle roast malt with hints of chocolate. The taste in awesome... decadently sweet chocolate with balanced flavor from the roast malts. The columbus hops also keep the chocolate sweetness from being too overpowering. Easily my favorite porter.
