Bottled 2012-13 winter. It's relatively fresh is what I'm saying.

It's black with a nice solid sheet of tan foam. Smells nice, coffee, cocoa, rich toasted graham crackers, bits of burnt toffee and a good dose of vanilla - but not overbearing. Flavor is rich with the tone of the nose and a little hint of pepper and almost a waxy crayon note. The bitterness is well matched with rich dark gooey chocolates and a little bit of dust. Full and smooth body with low carb and an off dry, but mucous producing finish. Nearly perfect mouthfeel for my money. nice beer as usual.

A-Black in the glass, one finger head that doesn't last, deep amber around the edges, some lacing.

S-Mainly coffee and roasted malt. Almost some burnt notes in there as well.

T-Starts with coffee, balanced with roasted malt, some burnt malt, vanilla creeps in. Chocolate as well. Great balance.

M-Medium bodied, very smooth with slight carbonation.

O-An amazing porter. HF can do no wrong.

A: Almost no head was present over the jet black body after a vigorous pour.

S: The aroma was mainly coffee with a subtle smoked aroma throughout.

T: Heavily roasted malts are in thr front of this beer with coffee and smoke in the background.

M: Heavy body with great carbonation.

O: I disagree with the classification of this beer as a porter. It is more of a stout. Either way it is a great beer.
