Just popped open a 6months old bottle
I did not intend age it, but ended up in my fridge for a very long time.
A: pitch dark black, heavy whipping tan foam that lasts several minutes
S: roasted malt, coffee, dry prune
T: rush of roasted malts, very well balanced with the malty back bone. very dark fruit taste (figs and prunes). some alcohol warming on tongue.
M: nice and dry finish. some alcohol sweetness
a great beer! this is one of the best porter/stout! highly recommend it

22-oz bomber to tulip. Bottled 1-28-2013. Traded for at Bottlecraft in San Diego (North Park, thanks Brian!) 5-29-2013. Consumed 6-29-2013.
A: very dark chestnut-coffee brown. medium carbonation with large mocha head fading quickly, but 1/2-finger head lingers. very little lacing
S: the roasted malts appear here as dark chocolate, faint toffee and espresso, grape skin.
T: less impressive than the aroma - dark chocolate bitterness, smoke, not sweet

22 oz bomber poured into Sam Adams perfect pint
Deep dark brown with a perfect 1/2 inch chocolate brown head
Inviting to drink with the eyes, but the nose isn't strong. Difficult to pick up what is on the way.
Deep, rich chocolate flavors with a nice roast that stays roasty but doesn't convert to coffee. Dark chocolate richness with only mild bitterness that balances the flavor. Perfect mouthfeel that is rich and satisfying but not overly thick.
This beer stands up with Midwest heavyweights like Edmund Fitzgerald and Founders Porter.

thanks to archenemybrew for this beer!
poured into tulip glass.
Appearance: black bodied beer with 3 fingers of tan head that results from a hard pour. Spotty lacing and good head retention.
Smell: Chocolate and mild roast malts! This is a great smelling porter!
Taste: Exactly like the nose. Nice chocolate note with a mellow roast malt flavor. As you keep drinking this beer, the roast starts to build a little bit. A hint of sassparilla and light smoke in the finish.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Really nice and easy drinking porter. Mouthfeel is appropriate for the style with just a little bit of creaminess. Not a hint of 7% abv. A well made beer.
Overall: Great example of a porter. Great chocolate notes; thats definately my favorite part about this beer. Its a solid beer for sure.
