500ml bottle from Oct. 2013, poured into a snifter. Thanks, Erin, for this, my first HF beer!
A: very dark; soapy brown head
S: roasted coffee beans; chocolate-covered dark cherries; faint honey notes
T: dark chocolate, dark fruit, and coffee; nice vanilla from the barrel; very sweet at first, but stabilizes after a few sips; lots of flavor, yet mild
M: so smooth and creamy; this is the mouthfeel all porters should aspire to
O: A fantastic porter. The barrel adds depth of flavor, and doesn't scream out "barrel aged." Mouthfeel was perfect. Sweet, rich, and restrained.
