2012 Vintage courtesy of Auror. Many thanks!
A: Requisite deep brown, nearly opaque black color. Creamy and deep - surprisingly deep - tan head with dense lacing that breaks like that of the most viscous stouts. Remarkable.
S: Roasted and chocolate malt, dark chocolate, hazelnut. Considerable smoke from some unknown but heavenly source. Some lactose-like sweetness at the end.
T: Everything in the nose, plus: begins to taste like a smokehouse smells (lightly) as it warms, tobacco in the middle, light earthy hop bitterness in the aftertaste.
M: The pour suggested that it may have been a bit too carbonated; fortunately that was not true - it's velvety and smooth.
Overall: The benchmark American porter.

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.
