This beer pours a deep mahogany color with minimal coffee with crème colored head. The smell is roasted coffee like malt with a sweet and herbal hop presence that's light and a kind of creamy smell, and I'm not sure where that's coming from.
Glug glug glug
The initial hit is the big roasty malts, with coffee and burnt toast taking the lead. This flavor is followed quickly by a big hop burst that all but erases the malt flavor. The end leaves the good flavors of both the malt and the hops, but from some reason these two flavors don't blend very well IMO. It's a nice idea to ramp up a porter with this many hops, but in this case it's kind of messy, not terrible but messy.

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.
