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.
