As Air below me put it. I too had it on tap @ Jose Pistolas in Philadelphia. This beer has all the classic porter traits to it. Pours dark brown with a tan head that disappears quite fast. The brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, and smoked flavors all pull through to make this beer an easy one to drink a few times in a row. There is a nice balance with the slight hops that ring through and the roasted flavor present right from the start. Very creamy and smooth. The flavors burst on your palate making it very easy to drink. As said below, it feels like it could be a good session beer but one too many can rock you. I may have had 3 or 4 and I feel that was enough for me.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Libby Poter/Stout glass.
A - Extremely dark brown to black body. 1 Finger head that is a dark orange/creamy caramel color. Head dissipates after about a minute and leaves splotchy lacing that is still active with bubbles and a large amount of lacing around the edge of the glass.
S - Light caramel, cooked orange , coffee, butter, vanilla, creamy, reminds me of a stout smell more than a porter, along the lines of a guiness. Hints of hops.
T - Starts incredibly creamy, once again reminded me of a guiness, but it followed with a spiciness like pepper and orange rind. Ends with moderate coffee and hop notes. Really nice flavor.
M - Starts off very full and rich, which I enjoy. Turns into mild acid, but is always accompanied by a creamy and bubbly lacing.
O - A very, very good beer, and one of the best porters I've ever had. I bought this beer from one of my favorite places because it was on sale. I was not expecting something this great for how much I paid for it, and I might go back and grab some more that were on sale.
