12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - dark black pour with a two inch foamy head, some retention and beautiful lacing.

S - subtle but nice nose including chocolate and coffee.

T - raisins, molasses, soy sauce, chocolate, coffee, licorice

S - good carbonation, small aftertaste

O - not a bad porter, but not the best I've ever had either. Worth a taste though for sure.

First had: on tap at the brewery

Easily my favorite beer that PC had to offer. Dark brown-black pour with a solid cap of foamy tan head that retained well and laced the glass. Dark malt sweetness in the aroma, notes of cocoa and ash. More dark roasty malts in the taste, nice semi-sweet chocolate profile, with a little coffee bitterness. Pretty good. Medium body, solid mouthfeel for the style, overall a good porter. If I had to revisit a PC brew, it would be this one.
