A- Body is a dark brown nearly black hue. Pours with a 1-2 creme brulee colored head that quickly fades to a thin collar. Some lacing is left behind in the glass.

S- Nose is mild to moderate in strength. Coffee, cream, sweet vanilla, roasted malt. A nice smooth balance.

T- Lots of coffee flavor upfront as well as vanilla sweetness. The finish has a moderate amount of roasted malt bitterness and some vanilla sweetness.

M- Low carbonation, medium to heavy weight body with a slightly thin consistency.

O- Overall this a pretty decent porter. Not much complexity to it and can come across as a hair thin.

Have had it in bombers and draft, draft seemed to be more consistent because this beer often sits in shops fridge's for a while.

Poured from a bomber into a heavy glass 16oz beer mug.

A - About as dark as brown can get without being black. Slight ruby hues showing through on the edges when held up tot he light, and about an inch of khaki head that dissipated after a few minutes leaving a thin layer of bubbles with marginal lacing. I could have done with a more lasting foam, but otherwise looks exactly how you want a porter to look.

S - Black coffee, of course. Dark wheat toast, roasted oats and malt and hints of chocolate. At the tail end there's a hint of molasses and citrus with the chocolate and coffee lingering throughout.

T - Matches what the nose implies. Heavy toasted malt followed by earthy chocolate tones and dark coffee. Mid-sip introduces toasted breads and molasses back into the mix, with a finish of dark malt, toasted oats, bitter chocolate, coffee and a hint of citrusy acidity.

M - Adequate carbonation and viscosity makes this feel like drinking black silk. Starts off bold and stays that way through the sip, but finishes dry with a touch of alcohol warmth and never feels syrupy. More or less exactly the way drinking a Porter is supposed to feel.

O - Definitely one of the better coffee porters I've had, and an excellent representation of the style (which, if you've tried anything else Berkshire makes, shouldn't come as any surprise.) Something I will recommend and pick up again.
