22 Ounce bottle:

Poured nice, with a small cream colored head that dissipated quickly. Very dark in color.

It smelled like roasted chocolate, and had a malty aroma.

The taste was complex, with a wonderful after-taste, roasted, with subtle alcohol presence.

A great brew for a single serving, maybe with a meal.

Best by 02/25/14

A: Dark brown to amber in color with a big, fluffy, light brown head. Good lacing and retention.

S: Huge aromas of chocolate, some coffee, and roasted malt. The dark chocolate really stands out. Fantastic for a Porter. Maybe some spices in there, too. A lot of good stuff going on.

T: Similar to the nose...full of chocolate and roasted malt. Some charred and earthy qualities. A very tasty beer that I would drink anytime.

M: The body is spot-on for the style, if not better than usual and closer to a stout. Not watery like some. Carbonation is there. The flavor never fades and provides a great finish.

O: Superb stuff here. Very easy-drinking. Well done, Berkshire!

Growler to pint.

A- A nice darkness to this porter. Sadly no head like I read in other reviews. I think that might be due to the growler.

S- Dark bitter Chocolate with hints of roasted malts.

T- Dark Chocolate, roasted malts, tiny bit of coffee. Front of the tongue brings the malts and the more I drink the more the chocolate taste sits on the back of my tongue.

M- Slightly carbonated but dark, creamy and delicious.

O- Overall a good porter. I love the creamy chocolatey finish.

Serving type: growler
