500mL bottle. Bottled 06/2013.
A-A bold black body with a thin incremental brown head. Lacing is minimal.
S-Roasted malt is the main component of the aroma. Dark chocolate, very mild smokiness and dark fruits of raisin and plum are subtle.
T-Again the roasted malt is upfront with a more pronounced smoke note on the palate. Dense dark chocolate is more towards the finish and after taste. The roastiness lingers with the dark chocolate in the finish. Very good and smooth. As it warms the alcohol becomes apparent and the dark fruit becomes more assertive. The two mix well and leave a great finish.
M-Full bodied, carbonation is apparent on the tongue. Sweet finish.
O-A beautifully done Porter. Highly drinkable even on this warm summer night. Have had this on tap once before and it was great and having this in a bottle does not disappoint. Wish I had another one to age for 6 months to see the subtle changes that would develop. I have to keep my eye open for the barrel aged version.

On tap at Rattle N Hum
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.
