12oz bottle poured into a small snifter.

A: Very dark brown.mclarity appears to be good. Creamy khaki-colored head retains at a half inch in height. Spotty lacing.

S: Tootsie rolls, chocolate-caramel chews, iced coffee, molasses, light whiffs of roasted malts. A touch leathery and figgy.

T: Bakers chocolate, roasted malts, good dose of charcoal, lightly acidic, black coffee, grassy/herbal hop oils, flash of citrus. Bakers chocolate, char, and fading roasted malt acidity on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with a light creaminess. Smooth and satiny. Light prickling carbonation.

O: More acrid than the nose suggests. A very no-frills porter. Drinkable and serviceable enough, but it doesn't stand out too much.

A solid porter but just not quite as bold and rich as I would like. Mouthfeel was a little on the thin side and there was not a whole lot in terms of finish in the flavor. Notes of coffee and chocolate throughout with a light smokiness. Just wish all those flavors had been more robust and bold.
