Don't remember when I bought this. Poured into a Nonic at cellar temp.

Look: Black or dark brown with a thin garnet sliver at the bottom, when held to the light. Nice tan head with very good lacing.

Smell: light roast and a hint of licorice

Taste: sweet, syrupy licorice dominates with a hint of char.

Feel: supple, slipperywith a clean finish

Overall: tasty, good looking. A very good beer.

Pretty good beer.
Very dark. Tall, bubbly head.
Quite bitter for a porter
Also a fair amount of sweetness on the attack: I'd prefer less.
Nice malt, hints of cocoa.
Rich mouthfeel, commensurate with the high alcohol.
Smoke on the finish - nice.
