Bottle to Westvleteren 12 (small) chalice
Best by: August 2012
A: Light tan. 1.5 (mocha) fingernail head on gentle pour. Doesn't look like a porter at all.
S: Vanilla, caramel, semi-sweet chocolate, oak, and fig.
T: Overwhelmingly sweet - vanilla and chocolate that's about it here.
M: Light body with medium carbonation.
O: Doesn't look or drink like a porter. Too sweet for my liking, but pairs decently well with carrot cake as a dessert beer.

This does not look at all like a porter, and I will admit that I was a bit put-off by the appearance. Light brown with copper hints to it. More like a brown ale, or even a mild. No real head to speak of.
Mild chooclate scent, not at all belied by the taste. Very low hop profile. Malts, chocolates, toffee and a bit of a sweet buttery and nutty profile. This carries through to the taste, with a bit more bitterness to it. Sort of like a dark or a bakers chocolate taste to it.
Smooth mouthfeel, but as it warms it feels a little bit too bitter for my liking. Quite a good beer, and after the initial shock of how it looks, I quite enjoyed this.
