Poured into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Pours slightly translucent dark brown with a thick, light tan head. There is some ruby red visible at the edges of the glass where the light penetrates. This beer smells like a porter should. There are some nice aromas of dark roasted and caramel malts. The Munich malt also helps add some of that bready sweetness. The hops are herbal and earthy in the aroma. The flavor includes dark roasted malts, caramel sweetness, some bready character, and a nice herbal hop bite. There are also some chocolate and coffee notes as well. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and the beer is smooth. The drinkability is high. This is an excellent beer.
