I'm not a huge fan of porters, but Ed insisted that I just had to try this one last night. Thank you, Ed. I owe you a favor.

This beer arrived a typical porter opaque black color. What was really different about it was the head. about 2 inches of foam so dense and stiff, you could have sculpted it with a putty knife. I've never seen a head this dense and creamy on a porter without being a nitro tap (which this was not).

Smell was actually somewhat difficult to detect. I practically had to bury my nose in the foam to smell anything. I finally got traces of sweet carmelized malt but not much else.

The taste on other other hand was very upfront. This is one absolutely outstanding porter. Heavy sweet malt rolls around on the tongue for an extended period. Faint traces of coffee and fruit in the finish.

I'm amazed that this beer doesn't have a higher rating.
Absolutely outstanding.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
