A: 3.75 - Pours very dark though not completely black. There is a little bit of a dark amber tint to it. About a two-finger head, very creamy looking.

S: 4.25 - A lot of dark roasty malt. You also pick up some sweet chocolate.Also a little dark fruit. Smell lovely!

T: 4.5 - SO tasty. Immediately you pick up the roasted malt and hint of chocolate. The malt is very present. Full of flavor. The dark fruit comes through as well. This is what I'd expect a porter to taste like. Very nice.

M: 4.25 - Very easy drinking. It's a little thin, but really smooth. Medium carbonation.

O: 4.18 - Overall it is a really nice beer, and something I'd certainly have again.

PoUrsula opaque black. The huge khaki head remains as a thick cap on top and leaves thick curtains of lace.

The smell is a balanced mixture of coffee, chocolate, wheat bread and faint vanilla.

The taste is also well balanced: chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a slightly bitter finish.

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Well balanced is how I'd describe this brew. All the aforementioned flavors and aromas working together in harmony with positive results. A very impressive American porter.
