Poured into a snifter.
Very dark brown, a little thin-looking. Some drinking thins the color out to a clearer bark-brown. The head is light tan, thin and fizzy, popping away quickly.
Intriguing blend of aromas. In this order: light roast coffee, oats, some pork, milk chocolate, earth.
Same thing going on in the flavor. Chocolate and lightly roasted coffee meld, along with some sweet oats and a touch of dark fruits. Bitter dark chocolate lingers after the swallow.
Thick, creamy body with peppery carbonation. Holds together well without a touch of alcohol.
A solid porter. Good flavor, nice feel.

A - poured with a small head of light tan foam on a dark brown body with amber highlights. The head series slowly and leaves moderate lace.
S - smoky caramel and chicory with some brown sugar.
T - dark sugar up front with some dry, roasted malt character in the middle. Finishes with molasses, licorice, and moderate bitterness.
M - medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.
D - a very nicely done porter, it manages to be dark and thick without ever becoming something that would be confused for a stout.

I had this on tap at the brew pub in Flagstaff, AZ. It was a deep reddish-brown color - almost purple, so that was unique. It didn't have much of a head and was highly carbonated. It had an interesting and strong sweet aroma, somewhat like coffee but more like a mocha, so a mix of strong espresso and chocolate.
Complex flavor to the taste also - hops are hidden but present, behind the major taste of chocolate/coffee malts.

Medium amber color. Small head. Aroma is roasted malts and a touch of chocolate. A medium bodied porter. Malts are roasted and chocolately. Hops are spicy. Maybe just a touch thin for a porter. . Well balanced. Very drinkable. Fruity finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste slightly sweet.
