big thanks to portable for this treat. enjoyed from a dc brau can glass.
bottle from 2012
a - brew poured watery black with an insane head that filled about half the glass. the head was frothy and foamy and a deep tan if not creamy brown. really thick and frothy. looked like a milkshake. the head hung out forever and left chunky lacing in the few spots that it dissolved.
s - robust roasted malt. has a crispness and a char to it, but more of a milky thing than a charcoal char. really pleasing.
t - very soft. roasted black malt. stale coffee. soft bitter bakers chocolate on the finish. cooling.
m - crisp and easy drinker. brisk. almost milk stout, but with a char.
o - overall a really nice porter. very classic and tasty. good char without being too much and nice subtle chocolate notes.

Appearance: Pours out almost pitch black with a frothy tan head that leaves a very streaky pattern of lace
Smell: Surprisingly ashy, with chocolate and coffee tones
Taste: Ash, chocolate and coffee, up front, with the hops building into the finish with a leafy, resinous character
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A surprising hop bite for this style, but I rather enjoyed it
Thanks, Dave_Treat, for the opportunity

12oz can. Pours a brownish black with an inch of brown head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and earth. The taste is more of those roasty malts followed by some coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Hints of smoke. Roasted malts and earth at the finish with some more bitter dark chocolate. Velvety, slick mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Overall, this is a solid Porter I'll be buying again.
