Pours a slightly brown/ruddy black with a large light tan head.
Smells primarily of char and ash, with notes of coffee and a slightly bitter ... chocolate? Maybe something bitterer than that .. kind of an espresso cacao aroma. Smells good.
Taste is surprisingly more rounded than the aroma, with notes of dark fruit, a surprising amount of espresso/coffee, and a light, very very light, undercurrent of malty chocolate sweetness. Unfortunately, the ash/char/smoke continues to make its presence felt in a big way, and it gets a bit distracting.
I like it. Good, robust mouthfeel.

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.
