12oz bottle, best before 03/29/15, date stamp 1732 12, served in an Innis & Gunn tulip glass. Shared as part of a beer tasting event.

Appearance: Held up to the light a bright dark brown with copper and amber and mahogany highlights. Think off white head and ring of foam, with some persistent lacing noted.

Smell: Chocolate, light herbal hops.

Taste: Definite chocolate (bittersweet) mixed in with char, some smokiness, and a bitter finish that is partly acidic, party woody, party burnt sugar/roasted malt bitterness. Hops are leafy and maybe a little bitter-tea like.

Mouthfeel: Sticky, smooth, nicely thick.

Overall / Drinkability: Easily drinkable, full of flavor, and I wish I had something meaty to pair with this in flavor. A solid porter.
