From 12/7/12 Tasting Notes... Seasonal selection on tap at the local supper club. This was served slightly chilled in a pint glass.
A) Dark brown with a nice finger of dark tan head. The head had nice retention, slowly settling to a dusting, ample lacing.
S) A nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee beans, chocolate, and a pleasant sweetness that was like melting brown sugar. Not overly sweet, but worth mentioning.
T) Near the nose, with an enjoyable taste of coffee, chocolate and toffee/caramel sweetness. There's some piney hops too, which was nice, and just bitter enough.
M) Pretty creamy, medium body, moderate carbonation. Easy drinking with a nice aftertaste.
O) Had this in a bottle a while back, and I recall that I liked it, but I was really impressed with it on tap. This is a very tasty porter, and I would gladly recommend it.
Paired this with a fish fry, which was also good going down. This was not the case later that night, thanks to the stomach virus that's been going around.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a cola like brown with very little head. Makes me a bit concerned about this bottle, as the label says it should form a large head.
The smell is mainly chocolate, maybe a bit of malt and vanilla as well.
Quite a bit of chocolate up front, there's some fruit and coffee, finishes with a bit of lingering hop bitterness.
A touch on the thin side, but the carbonation keeps it interesting and lets me know my concern about the lack of head is unfounded.
Overall a pretty nice beer. I consider it to be a dessert beer, as it reminds me a bit of chocolate cake or a brownie. It's maybe a touch heavy on the hops, but still goes down fairly easily. Glad I took a chance on this one.
