look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

500 ml bottle (1 pint 0.9 fl oz.) with no apparent bottled on date present. The local beer store has had these for close to a year now, and I'm finally getting around to it. Awesome old school 18th century style bottle. My first encounter with this brewery, expectations are about average.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a massive fluffy four fingers of light mocha colored head on top of a chestnut brown / dark ruby colored body. Nice chunky foamy head as the beer drinks, looking like the whipped topping on a root beer float. Nice thin ribbons of lacing on the glass. Some noticeable yeast content when held to the light.

S - Smell is of light cola, brown sugar, some nuttiness, used coffee grounds, vanilla, cream, cookie dough, powdery cocoa / chocolate, & some yeast.

T - Taste follows the nose: cold black coffee, brown sugar sweetness, raisins, earthiness, and some mineral qualities to it on the finish. A very nice classic example of the style. I'm really digging this.

M - Creamy and smooth with a bitter, sticky finish. Maybe a tad over carbonated and a bit full-bodied for the style.

Overall, a well-made classic styled porter, with intriguing packaging, and a nice blurb about the brewery on the bottle. Definitely looking forward to trying more beers from this brewery.
