My favorite porter. It's pretty close to perfect- when it hasn't travelled across the country, that is. The one I had in Philly was a sad shell of its former self. The ones in Oregon were dreamy, though.

I had this poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking jet black color. A one finger white foamy dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing graced the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice roasty to smoky glossing of sweet to dark chocolate malts. Slight bitter edge of coffee entered in a nice way.
The taste was roasty and somewhat sweet from a slight dark chocolate edge, a nice roasty coffee edge helps to balance.
The mouthfeel had a really nice smooth sweet and yet roasty rolling robust creaminess over my tongue. This one just moved so nicely over my tongue.
Overall, holy wow! Though I've had this so many times before, it was only until now I realized how good this really is.
