Was on tap, served in mug.
Appearance was dark brown almost black. Head was about 2 fingers and did not pay attention to or notice any lacing. Maybe I forgot to look.
Smell was a malty, coffee type of smell.
The first thing that hit me was the hops. Not excessive, but it was prominent, without being bitter. I liked that. I kept looking for a chocolate taste, but I think a coffee taste was closer. Carbonation gave a slight bite to the tongue.
Mouthfeel was about right to me, without being too watery or thick.
Overall this beer is now on my list of beers to try again.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
