Beer is black with a a good-sized beige head. Fades at a steady pace.

Smell contains lightly roasted malt, caramel, chocolate. Quite nice.

Taste is like the nose. Caramel, chocolate, roasted malt. A bit earthy, and a touch of black liquorice. Moderately sweet.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Very smooth.

Overall, a really nice porter.

Misc.: Best by April 29, 2013

Poured a black color with four fingers of frothy, bubbly khaki tan head that lasted for quite some time. Good deal of uneven, foamy lacing on the sides. Nice retention all the way down.

Smelled toffee, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Some roastiness as well. Very nice on the nose.

Tasted roasted toffee, caramel, coffee and dark chocolate. Also some smoky woodfire in there as well. Wow.

Medium. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, roasty finish.

Wow! I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to try this but it was just a fantastic porter. I will definitely be having more of these.
