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.

On tap at Doherty’s Ale House Warwick 4/7/14
Solid dark brown/black small tan head. Chocolate and roast with hints of caramel and earth. Decent porter.

4/10/14
Can brought back from OSHC.
Pours a solid black color with a smallish tan head that dissipates almost instantly. Aromas of bitter dark chocolate with a hint of caramel. Light burnt and molasses notes with a heavy earthy hop presence. The flavor mimics the aroma quite well. Bitter dark chocolate with caramel and molasses as well as hints of dark fruits. Solid earthy hop bitterness and flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick bubbly mouthfeel. I quite enjoyed this beer at home, great can.

The taste is rich and smooth. Unlike other Porters, this one tastes a little more smoother and less carbonated, but with less filling than usual. It almost seems as if the Mash during it's cycle of Brewing was more watered down /filtered a tiny more, and it was a one shot deal, and that's why i feel/taste as if this beer deserves an outstanding.

Im sampling a cellar temp can poured into a snifter.
The beer pours a dark cola brown with densely packed tan head of 3 cm foaming up. The head fades gradually to a sturdy edge layer.
Aroma is sweet malt with some molasses and a bit of brown sugar and bakers chocolate. i also get roasted notes and some mild spicy hop character.
First sip reveals a smooth textured body that features gentle spacious carbonation making the beer very easy to drink. Sticky coating properties after each sip too.
FLavor is big on the malt side with roasted malt up front, dark chocolate and maybe a little tobacco actually.
There isnt any alcohol to be spoken of nor any big hop flavor that I get. This finish is bitter, but it is coffee ground and almost burnt malt flavor that gives the bitterness not any hops.
A rich robust malt forward beer, that goes down easy and leaves a lingering roasted finish after each sip.
A worthy beer from a good brewery in RI.
