[Best served in an English pint]
The pour was a very dark clear brown with a large frothy tan head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing.
The aroma was quite thick of the scent of coffee with dark roasted malts and a chewy leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, molasses and dark chocolate.
The taste was sweetly bitter and had a nice malty presence with coffee overtones in the beginning and finished with a strong coffee flavor, yet still sweetly bitter but with hints of chocolate and molasses with a touch of caramel at the end.
Mouthfeel was full in body with the texture being smooth and creamy and an almost flat carbonation.
Overall a wonderfully tasting Porter. All of the components in this brew worked together very well giving you an extremely well balanced beer. A great representation of the style.

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.

I really like this beer. Very dark and robust, with a creamy coffee like flavor (as though I had added cream to my coffee). Flavors are really well balanced. Very nice mouthfeel. Great aromas. And I found that it is very reasonably priced.
Had it for the first time on tap at the Grill Next Door (Haverhill MA), and have since had it in bottles several times. Both quite good.
