just outstanding to look at as it pours a liquid near-black that hints at red if held to a supernova...perfect, beautiful lacing, a dark cola head that settles in slow motion with a thickish center that maintains the mountainous/pyramid appearance throughout until it flattens into a respectable island of foam. wow.

smells of sweet roasted malt. toasty. coffee. chocolate. maybe dried fruit, nuts. very balanced and assertive but not overwhelming.

wow. all these years, had one at a party, maybe one at a Dead show almost 20 years ago (well, outside of it, with the drummers...), never stopped and focused on this, poured it, nosed it....the taste is simply perfect....all elements are in perfect synchronization. there's a full-bodied mouthfeel peppered with just enough carbonation that allows all those roasty-toasty effects to play out, sustain, assert and fade very slowly. it enters the mouth and just bursts all over the place....elements soon run off to their favorite tasting areas of the palate. a smart porter. very smart.

refreshing, sessionable, just about perfect. in every sense of the word. i'll have to get a case of this before winter and icy times are done. sorry i missed this at Yule. a perfect brew to share during the holidays. and it's not expensive...

PERFECTION. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
