Bottle poured into tulip stem glass.
Pours a big, creamy, long lasting head. Carbonation is noticable, despite the almost opaque black colour. Leaves a nice bit of lacing.
Smells of roasted chocolate malt with a hint of sweetness to round it out. Clean, with no detectable yeast or hop characteristics.
Taste is quite bitter and roasty (yet not harsh or ashy), almost like dark roast coffee. Assertive US bittering hops reinforce the finish.
Mouthfeel is quite enjoyable, the lively carbonation seems to work.
Drinkability is high for me. An amazing amount of flavour is packed into this 5.4% brew.
This was the last bottle of the 6-pack I picked up in the States in early October. I really enjoyed them and would definitely purchase again. It's an agressive porter for sure, but tasteful nonetheless. One of the best I've ever had.
