On tap @ Mugs Ale House in Brooklyn, NY

A: Very dark brown pour - bordering on black - with a thin layer of light walnut head that dissipated quickly. Lacing is minimal but present.

S: The nose is dominated by freshly roasted coffee beans and vanilla extract. Dark chocolate and Christmas spices are detected (especially cinnamon) with a bit of roasted malt as well.

T: Amazing! Espresso and creme brulee just made love in my mouth. Bold espresso, vanilla beans, roasted cacao beans, freshly grated cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and notes of dark fruit. Just a touch of burnt toffee. The flavors come together rather smoothly with just the right amount of creamy lactose sweetness. A very faint hop character comes through to perfectly balance this porter.

M: Very smooth, medium bodied, slightly dry with a gentle carbonation.

D: One to remember. Instantly one of my favorites. I could easily drink this all night and would be very tempted to have a few the following morning. Hats off to Hill Farmstead for this winner. Can't wait to get my next Twilight fix.
