It's a very dark brown, but with a bit of clarity and a slight reddish tint. The head is tan, about half a finger tall, with a modicum of bubbly lacing left behind by the layer of froth that rests atop the brew.
There's something a bit like chicory behind some bittersweet cocoa in the nose, a note of caramel, roast, and tanginess running through.
The tang is lemony and a little funky, balancing some figgy sweetness, a hint of smoky and creamy vanilla, and some earth extremely well. This one isn't too hard on the palate, but isn't too weak or shallow. There's plenty for the tongue to decipher, and it works very nicely.
This holds the lightish-medium body of the classic style as I understand it, some good flow without a lot of weight but not lacking, either. Maybe it ends up a little light and fizzy, carbonated like a soda, but with a little added weight to it.

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.
