Pours a deep brown color, one shade shy of black and practically impregnable by light. A thick, delicate head sits on top of this fantastic looking beer with authority and rides the glass to the last drop, leaving plenty of lacing to remind you of what once was.
The aroma is ripe with rich, bitter cocoa and fresh coffee grounds. It's simple but delightful and begging for another whiff.
Words describing the aroma can be said about the robust flavor. Rich, bitter chocolate reminiscent of a Lindt dark chocolate truffle. Roasted coffee and dark malt. The warmer this one gets, the more the bitterness shines through. For the style - it's perfection! A molasses sweetness is present but vague.
Silky-smooth medium body, more stout than porter though. Otherwise beautifully executed. Carbonation is light but spot on for the style and the finish is a bit on the dry side.
All in, this is a fantastic brew and lives up to the hype surrounding it. If you find it, I highly recommend grabbing it - I know I will be!

On tap at the Odell Brewery - Ft. Collins, CO - June 17, 2013 (Review from my Notes)
A - Dark brown, with 1 finger of head and lots of sticky lace left on the glass. Perfect looking Porter
A- Smoked dark brown malts. Oaky notes
