Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appears a nice dark brown color, with only slight visibility through the edges. There is a thin tan head that has great staying power and leaves some decent lacing on the glass.

The nose is deep roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. It isn't overwhelming in power, but is very pleasant. The taste follows suit, with good chocolate and coffee notes along with a touch of dark fruits that was not present in the nose. The flavors all work together well and no one thing stands out over the others.

The mouthfeel is fairly smooth with lower than average levels of carbonation. This lacks the creaminess I look for in a porter, but it doesn't detract too much from the overall beer. This is a very well crafted porter, which is very enjoyable, satisfying and refreshing in the right sitting.
