A - Poured a very nice shade of charcoal brown while retaining a sudsy head of caramel-cream foam.
S - Booyaaa! I'm not a coffee drinker by any means, in fact I loathe the stuff, but this smelt damn good. Definitely smelling the beans, as well as the malty-roasty goodness you'd expect in a porter.
T - Lovely. Less coffee than on the nose which suits me down to the ground. Hardly any discernible alchol, yet was still rich and smokey. Not much variance between first sip and after taste, so couldn't attribute it great complexity.
M - Smooth, thick and nicely carbonated.
O - Honestly I thought this was a really solid brew. Tasty, nicely balanced coffee flavour and well measured carbonation and viscosity on the tongue. Nothing earth shattering here but this could well be my go-to beer while I'm on the Islands. Would definitely take 6 of these over 4 Maui CoCoNuts.

This one was part of the variety pack. I really liked everything in it this year and ended up by a couple of the 12 pack.
Poured in to an imperial pint glass, the beer is a dark, dark brown with a skim of tan foam.
It has a nose of dark fruit, roasted malts and a hint of coffee.
Taste leads with dark roasted malts, raisins, brown sugar & coffee. it is slightly bitter from the roast. There is just a whisper of alcohol which is low enough as not to be distracting.
To me the mouth is a touch over carbonated. But it is a bit thick which works.
This is a nice porter and one I'm glad to have had multiple times this winter.
