Poured into a pint glass.
A - Had a solid light tan head that dissipated quickly leaving behind some of the larger bubbles. The color is a very dark amber. About as close to black as you can get without actually being black. No light coming through this one when held up to the light either.
S - Says it has a complex smell but I'm honestly hardly picking up much aroma. Definitely some roasty notes. Little bit of chocolate and coffee. Nothing extraordinary.
T - Hit right away with a nice coffee taste. Very mild hoppiness. There is a level of sweetness that cuts the bitterness. Makes for a great well rounded flavor. Pretty heavy with the coffee off the bat and finishes with a subtle dark chocolate flavor.
M - Definitely a "chewy" beer. Light carbonation which is nice because it doesn't mask any of the flavor.
Overall this is a nice porter. I could down this pretty easily with a nice big burger or a steak. Not sure if I'll be picking up another one anytime soon but it beats a lot of other porters that are available around here such as Otter Creek's Stovepipe Porter or anything Magic Hat has to offer.

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.
