Pours a deep, rich chocolate with a head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of coffee and sweet nuts are evident. Though the mouthfeel is strangely thin for a porter, I can’t say I mind as the flavor sensations are complex, ranging from a bitter coffee taste of hops to hazelnut qualities on the tongue. Just the right amount of carbonation helps it all go down. The label on the very attractive bottle contends that this is a porter in the classic mold, and if that is the case then I’m sad we don’t see this style around much anymore. The lightness tends to allow more appreciation of the taste. My drinking companion comments “it’s a porter that doesn’t force you to choose between a beer and dinner,” which I find nicely sums up both of our feelings.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Black with a brown head.

S: Roasty, sweet malt, chocolate, coffee, smells good.

T: Taste is the same, but better. It's very flavorful, and the nose was quite dull, comparatively.

M: Very full bodied. Very smooth.

O: A damn fine porter. This beer made me fall in love with the brewery, and I've tried almost everything of their that I can get my hands on.
