Poured into a pint glass.
Pours an almost black with a thin head and great lacing down the glass.
Has a big hop smell and some chocolate in there as well.
This beer has a lot of hops. But it doesn't weigh the beer down. There are a lot of chocolate flavors in the beer that really balance out the hops.
It's a medium bodied beer with a light but snappy carbonation.
This is a very quaffable beer, which for me is a rarity with something this hoppy. It a nice brew but not sure that I'd label it a porter. Black IPA maybe?

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.
