Pours a very deep mahogany brown. Not much happening in the way of head, just has a tan rim around the glass. Very spotty lacing.
Very rich in coffee to the nose. Lots of roasted malt in there giving it a heavy nose. Good amount of sweetness as it warms, a bit of vanilla in there.
Roasted malt, lots of bitter coffee, and a decent smoky flavor on the finish. Nice vanilla in the bitter finish.
In between medium and full bodied. Mildly carbonated, and very slightly sticky and lingering.
It's a very good porter. A nice combination of coffee and the robustness of a porter. Easy to find, and easy on the wallet. Another good beer by BBC.

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.
