A:black body with very thin to no head.

S: sweet smokey hickory with mild bitter cocoa

T: Bitter like a stout with a smokey character to it. Deep roast from chocolate malts with some bitter sweet chocolate that's a late arrival. Finishes fairly clean with only some lingering bitterness with a slight nutty character.

M: Clean and smooth easy to drink

O: Pretty good but I'd think of it more on the stout end of the spectrum with roastey flavors similar to guinness. I seem to recall having one with more chocolate coffee character to it but this particular bottle seems lacking.

First I have to say is wow! Love this beer!

A - nothing special about the appearance which is the only thing wrong with this porter. Pours a typical perfect black color bot small brown head that fades quickly into a very small amount of lacing.

S - terrific with a sweet coffee and roasted malts!

T - almost perfect!! May be perfect!! Definitely into top two. Perfectly balanced for my taste buds sweet honey or caramel prevails with coffee undertones. Best porter I've ever tasted!!

M - full bodied and smooth! No lingering bitterness. Perfection!

O - love it!!!! Great beer. I could drink it every day.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Very dark almost black, with nice brown head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a nice balance. Can smell the hops, coffee, and roasted malts, but none of the aromas dominate the others.

Taste: A nice mix of hops and malts, and with a hint of roasted coffee. The hops are just enough to balance the malts and provide for some complexity. There are hints of some sweetness from the malt, with a little coffee flavor. There is a nice mix of hop and malt influence in the after taste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, and with a good body.

Overall: This is an interesting porter. It is better than I expected, and I would buy another case.
