Deepest black color blocking light with a thick caramel head with good retention and leaving laces.
Nice and bold aroma with notes of cocoa and coffee.
Flavor with notes of espresso coffee, dark fruits, licorice, oatmeal, mild pecan, roasted malts, chocolate cake, some smoke and a citrus hint. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a long lasting roasted note.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Very smooth and creamy. Alcohol of 7.5% is simply not there.
Excellent Porter, though it felt to me like a bold stout. Very flavorful.

12/19/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Not very impressed. More aroma than flavor. Not much body but experience dictates that can be the nature of porters. With all the choices in front of me this doesn't make the cut.
