This bottle is from a trade with nchrist13 at the 05 Dark Lord release, which means this bottle is at least 8 months old. It has been in my fridge almost the whole time though, and it still tastes great, so I'm going to go ahead and review it.

It pours an extremely murky (due to having the most sediment in a porter I have ever seen despite leaving some at the bottom of the bottle while pouring) brown with a nice one finger cream colored head that sticks around for awhile and leaves some transient lacing.

The smell is pretty standard for a porter - very chocolatey and creamy smelling. There is some citrus in there as well, which is interesting.

The taste reveals what the citrus in the smell was all about - this is significantly hopped for a porter, and for once I like it! Actually I've only had one other really hoppy porter besides this one, and I didn't enjoy that one. This is great though! For some reason the citrus and the chocolate blend very well together to create a very unique signature. Roasted malt is pretty subdued here, leaving the taste incredibly smooth despite the hops. A very dry bitter finish really rounds this brew out with complexity.

The mouthfeel also really delivers. Its smoothness is only exceeded by the very best porters. It has the perfect amount of body and carbonation so that it dances lightly on the tongue but still seems rich and filling.

Unfortunately I only have a few bottles with no other way of obtaining them, otherwise this would be a staple in my fridge.
