Poured myself a couple of these after returning from driving the family around looking at Christmas Lights. Wasn't thrilled at first but this porter quickly grew on me. Roasted, chocolate malt nose with a noticeable hop scent, also some buttery sweets. Gorgeous pour I was and still am very impressed. Near black darkness with a 2" tan head that calms to about one fourth of that and lacing, man tons of lacing all around and down the glass. Mouthfeel is creamy with a medium body, very drinkable. Sweet chocolate taste gives way to a roasted nuttiness. Bitter english hops tickle the tongue at the end. Great addition to their winter sampler.
