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.

Pitch black with light ruby notes, small beige head, good retention.
Smells of coffee, dark roasted malts, burnt sugar.
Taste follows the smell (dark roast, with nice coffee notes), but there's a sweet dark chocolate balancing the dark malts. A certain low crispness also, from some lemon zest, also faint citrus and some juicy figs, raisins. Sweetness is not entirely caramel, but also some licorice notes come through. Spices range from dark cinnamon, cocoa powder to light vanilla, pepper and faint anise and ginger. Hops in the finish are surprisingly green for this style of beer, providing a tea leaf like bitterness, enhanced by the roast. Quite dry in the finish.
Not so creamy, watery and a bit too fizzy, would have liked it to be more robust, going down slower.
Maybe i'm not acustomed with these "old style" porters, but i expected more from this one. Still, flavour delivers perfectly.
