From a bottle to a pint glass...
Pours an opaque dark brown almost black color, two finger off white head that left awesome lacing.
Sweet smelling with roasted chocolate.
More roasted chocolate flavor, sweet and bitter.
Feels medium bodied and has good carbonation.
This is a very flavorful beer, one of the best in the porter category.

After being told of by others to try / much blather / hype, I've had a bottle for about 2 months chilling and finally cracked'r open:

Color / Aroma: Porter black-brown, with nominal carbonation and limited smell

Taste: cold, heavy, and alluring; it's about time something lived up the one's high expectations. Aftertaste is nearly non-existence--meaning smooth finish.

Drinkability: it's a porter's porter; a new classic standard in my book of poor imitators / wannabes. Wish I had another right now; gotta go get me some mo'.

Cheers on this one.
