Very dark brown, almost black when poured. Low creamy head that dissipates quickly. Decent smell, though not strong. Delicious tasting porter; full of flavor. Nice rich taste with flavors of chocolate and coffee, slightly smoky. I enjoyed the beer a lot; though I did not find myself craving another immediately - probably because I found this beer filling. Medium to heavy body; slightly grainy.

360ml bottle imported March 2012.
Poured with a creamy tan head that had very good retention and lacing. Very dark brown but clear body.

Aroma: lightly sweet, with hints of chocolate, raisins and coffee.

Flavor: rich and complex with great balance and a lasting dark-roasted grain aftertaste. Somewhat similar to a Scottish stout including a hint of smoke.

Feel: Medium body is near creamy smooth even with lively medium carbonation.

O: an excellent porter.

Poured into a pint glass. The beer pours really dark brown to black with a thin, light tan head and some visible rising bubbles along the side of the glass. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and dark roasted malt. The taste follows the nose. There's some rich bittersweet chocolate and coffee with vanilla and dark roasted malt. It's straightforward and delicious. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and the beer goes down smoothly. This is an excellent beer.
