22 oz bomber, no date. Pours a black color, nearly opaque except for a slight caramel glow at the base when held to the light. The beigh head didn't firm up all that much, but showed decent retention and left a fair amount of lacing.
The aroma is toasty and nutty, hints of chocolate, toffee, and some tree bark.The flavor follows, with a strong carob and grainy coffee finish. It improved greatly as it warmed, more subtle and nuanced.
The mouth is medium bodied, rather light compared to some porters. It deomonstrates solid complexity, lighter and cherry-like on the tip of the tongue, then dries nicely on the luscious finish. A tip o' the cap sirs.
