From a bottle into a tulip glass, accidentally aged a year in my dad's fridge, I can't say I have much to compare it to because I'm relatively new to beer, especially porters. Very tasty beer. Not a lot of head. Really pretty held up to the light: black with dark, translucent red coming through. The nose didn't jump out at me but there was definitely a little caramel as indicated on the bottle. The taste was very chocolately with some caramel in the background. Toasty, nothing resembling coffee, but a lot of chocolate and vanilla and caramel and toastiness. Creamy mouthfeel, not a lot of carbonation. Very enjoyable, especially on a cold day.
