A - Black body, white head really pops in contrast. Low lacing.
S - Cocoa, coffee. Sweet chocolate, not really any roastiness.
T - Chocolate, dark malts, coffee. Really well balanced.
M - Medium/thick body. Feels like it could be a stout. Coats the palate. Coffee bitterness lingers.
O - One of the better porters I've had in a while. My favorite character is the smoothness of the body.

BBD 3/09/15. Very dark amber pour, but not opaque, with a dark ruby element. Below average head, lacing and retention. Very weak nose of roast and chocolate over a mineral note. Nice medium body with a touch of creamy texture. Below normal carbonation with minimal effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is outstanding - intense, balanced and complex. It begins with bitter dark chocolate that flows into a blend of light roast and coffee. The middle is moderate hop bitterness over a light sweetness with nut and grain characteristics. The finish is somewhat clean with a slightly astringent note.
