I enjoyed this during our birthday stout tasting, enjoyed chilled from the growler purchased at the Brewery in a stout glass.
The color is dark brown almost black with thick beige cap with fine bead. The aroma is strong with malt and roasted aroma with a slight fruit and sweet cookie-like scent with mild cocoa and vanilla qualities. The feel is a bit on the sweeter side, but roasted presence is there with a nice roastd middle and medium carbonation with semi-dry smooth finish.
The taste is pretty outstanding I would say more impressive than that it just oozes the malt flavor with low roast and subtle caramel in the background with a light spice and very mild alcohol with sligth dark cocoa flavor as it finishes. Overall this is one of my favorites of this style and in the realm of all-time-favorite beers for me, exceptional in every way.

A - Dark brown, almost black opaque with a nice tan head and good lacing.
S - Coffee, sweet caramel, roasted malt, and earthy tones
T - Big bitterness, dark chocolate, a touch of espresso, some oak. The swallow brings everything together, with big chocolate bitterness and charred toast.
M - Full bodied. Silky smooth. Low side of moderate carbonation. Semi-dry finish.
O - This is the definition of what a porter is. If you had to choose a beer to define a category this is it when it comes to porters for me. Another solid brew from HF.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Just an exceptional beer. It's been a long, long time since I rated a beer this highly.
In a tulip the beer was black. There was a small, café au lait colored head with a smattering of lace.
Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt.
Complex taste. One minute I'm tasting sweet chocolate, the next minute dark chocolate, then espresso.
A wonderful combination of bitter and sweet. Medium-bodied.
I could drink this forever.

Happy to get to try this one on tap at the Lazy Boy in White Plains, NY a few months ago and this is reviewed from notes.
Pours near black with a dark tan head. Leaves tons of fine lace covering the glass all the way to the top of the glass.
Dense dark chocolate nose.
More dark chocolate, vanilla and dark malty notes. Densely flavorful and super smooth. Finishes with a quite dry flourish. All star porter. Well worth seeking out.
