12 oz bottle into a DFH signature glass. Bottled on March 2012. Nearly a year old and it had some goop on the bottom of the bottle, mmm goop. Thank Wes for the extra!
A - Pours a pitch black body, a rather dark porter that shows just a hint of brown on the edges when held up to the light. One finger of off white foam with some real nice lacing and retention.
S - Bitter coffee beans and smooth milk chocolate. A touch of roasted malt and vanilla. Smells a lot like a malted milk ball. Real nice!
T - Milk chocolate, coffee and cream, and lasting roasted mats. Not as great as the nose.
M - Thin to medium bodied with ample carbonation. Pretty spot on for a porter.
O - The char gets to be a bit too dominating on the aftertaste, but this is otherwise a nice porter. Its held up very well considering its almost a year old.

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.
