Thanks to my bro for sharing this bottle.
Poured a black coffee hue with a finger of khaki colored head.
The aroma was fresh espresso beans ground with fresh coffee beans, cocoa and vanilla.
Taste follows the nose. This brew tastes so fresh! Like a delicious fresh brewed espresso with some cocoa and vanilla. Amazing!
The mouth feel is medium bodied but full in flavor. A moderate amount of carbonation... I really feel like it complimented the beer perfectly. Drying roasty espresso finish. So money!
Overall, this beer was every bit worth the "hype". All around a solid brew.

Poured from a 750 mL growler into a HF stemmed tulip. The growler was obtained on 3/01/2014 from the brewery, and consumed on 3/03.
A- Jet black with a molasses brown hue at the edge of the glass. The small tan head from the pour recedes quickly, leaving minimal lacing. This is a beautiful beer and hits all of the visual cues that my brain is looking for in a porter. I suppose a tiny bit more head/lacing could make this a perfect 5, but I'm reaching here!
O- Wow. Just absolutely wonderful on all accounts. Fresh malted barley with a beautiful medium roast. Neither overwhelming nor faint, this one is just right. It's hard to imagine a better smelling porter.
T- Up front, it's pure malty, roasty goodness. As the mild sweetness fades, the coffee flavor starts to pick up, reaching a quite lovely combination of malt and mocha. Coffee dominates the finish, bringing on a satisfying light bitter quality that makes you crave another sip.
M - Silky smooth, this beer is not as heavy as I expected. There's minimal carbonation, yet it still feels light on the tongue. It's a bit surprising, as its not as syrupy as I expected, nor as dry. The alcohol is quite well hidden, as is the case with most HF beers.
O - Simply the best porter I have ever had. Absolutely astounding purity. I've had this on tap and from a growler, and it did not disappoint. If you are a fan of porters, I highly recommend you seek this out!
