Pours opaquem very dark brown. Dark tan head that settles to a ring.
Aroma is rich chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark burt caramels, light fruitiness, subtle "C" hops. Very nice, I can honestly call it decadent.
Flavor follows the nose, very chocolatey, nice balance of roast, hints of dark fruits (figs). Midway through/towards the finish there is some alcohol, light roast, more chocolate (dark) and hints of hop bitterness. The finish is smooth and enjoyable with dark caramels and chocolate lingering.
Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with medium/low carbonation. Smooth, slightly creamy.
Overall this is a very good porter, I would love to have this again.

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.
