Pours pitch black with a nice one finger tan head. Looks moderately carbonated. Head recedes to a slight skim. Still looks attractive.

Smells of roasted dark malts with hints of coffee/cocoa notes. slight smoke and a caramel sweetness. There is a nice orange zest that I can kind of pick up on. Lends itself well even if I think it's just my mind playing tricks.

Taste is really outstanding. It's nicely balanced and the flavors don't overpower one another. I definitely get the roasted character and slightly burnt brown sugar midway through. And at the front of the tongue I get a slight citric note that melds with some roasted baked beans, oats, and dark malts. Hint of brown sugar sweetness.

Mouthfeel is fairly full yet crisp enough to not let this feel sticky or viscous. A nice drinkable, somewhat reasonable abv porter. Very appreciative of that.

Overall, if this were a year round offering It might be my go to porter. I would have to try a couple more times to see if the subtle citric notes would get old but as of right now, I'm digging it.

The beer poured a dark amber color. It was dark enough that in the glass it appeared opaque. Coffee and cream head. I smelled a little citrus. The taste was mainly roasty notes, but with an aftertaste which reminded me of the aftertaste of orange juice. Blending blood oranges with a porter worked nicely.

Somehow this was still on tap in April of 2013 in Brooklyn.

It comes in a black color with a beautiful mocha color head.

The aroma has huge black chocolate and roasted malt. It's sweet and inviting.

The taste has a bit less chocolate, but still good flavor. There is coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, and a slight alcohol aftertaste along with some bitterness. I did not pick up orange, but the website says blood orange goes into that beer, so that must be where the bitterness comes in.

The finish has some molasses, but the finish isn't exactly quite there.
