500ml bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
A: Pours a very deep, dark brown. Close to black, but not quite there. A moderately aggressive pour yields about 3-4 fingers of creamy brown head. Retention is spectacular, and large sheets of clumpy lacing blanket the glass.
S: Fudge, french roast, German chocolate cake, some nutty and earthy yeast. Black cocoa powder and whiffs of charcoal-like roasted malt. Hints of vanilla and caramel. Very mild alcohol ester and some darkfruits in the background. Fig and plum.
T: Chocolate syrup, double chocolate cake, roasted coffee beans, a bit of a woody impression. Caramel and a slight creamy vanilla impression in the background. More chocolate cake. Very subtle fruity tastes of fig and date. Long, lingering finish of semi sweet dark chocolate, fudge, and roasted coffee beans.
M: Medium bodied. Extraordinarily creamy and velvety smooth. Low carbonation. You rarely come across a mouthfeel like this.
O: This is truly one of the top porters I've ever had. Its shining points are a layered, nuanced, and shifting malt complexity and an uncommonly creamy and smooth body. Its weaknesses are none.
