Fills the glass with a nice dark black looking body but requires a rather aggressive pour to yield much head. Pretty standard as far as porters go.
Rich chocolate and roasty espresso notes come through nicely on top of an underlying toasted bread character and just a hint of earthy hops.
As expected, the roasty dark malts do most of the talking here. Bittersweet to a point with a nice fresh coffee flavor and some delicate chocolate notes. Subtly balanced by the hops. Not quite as robust as some but pleasant nonetheless.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side for a robust porter, but it makes for an easy drinker. Overall, not quite as in-your-face as some porters can be (i.e. Smuttynose, Founders) but still an enjoyable drink on a cloudy/rainy day.

A: Appears black in the glass. Fully opaque - don't see any light coming through on this one. Forms a rather large dark beige colored head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing.
S: Aroma is dark malts, burnt malts, coffee, carbonation, and a slight hint of pine.
T: Starts off with dark, chalky, dry malts. A bit of burnt malt in the mix with that burnt malt bitterness. Dark chocolate and cocoa.
M: Body is on the heavier side of medium. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness. Chalky.
O: A decent porter. Nothing spectacular, but not a bad drinker either.
