nice looking porter, black with amber tints and a nice light tan head and good lacing.

Smells very nice. Lightly roasty and smoky notes with a touch of chocolate.

Taste follows somewhat along the nose, but even more complex and delicious. There's a great smoky roasted backbone with sweet milk chocolate, a wisp of coffee, and a very well proportioned yet forward and complex hop profile. Really good, this may be my favorite porter I've tried yet!

Sweet, full bodied, smooth as hell and incredibly satisfying. The hops finish it off with just a touch of twang that really surprises me, and sets this porter apart from the rest.

Monstrous! Great porter, definitely try and include in trades to people who like porters.

A - Pours cola like in appearance. Nice 1 1/2 finger tan head. Excellent retention and lacing

S - Light aroma. Sweet malts, lots of chocolate and even a slight bourbon on the finish if you use your imagination.

T - Not as sweet as the nose. Has a bitter finish with a hint of smoke. More coffee beans flavor present than chocolate but both are there. Smoke tends to linger on the finish

M - A medium body beer. Fizzy in the mouth and fairly smooth to drink. Just the tiniest hint of burn when the smoke flavor lingers

O - A solid porter. Nice flavor and I particularly enjoyed the smoky finish. Not a sessionable beer, but would be very enjoyable on a cool fall day or with some spicy bbq
