Very good porter. A bit too carbonated though, almost takes away from the mouthfeel. I got roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a little something sweet, perhaps vanilla or even maybe a sweet fig. Very very tasty but the mouthfeel was strange due to the carbonation

Poured a deep brown with reddish highlights around the edges. A mile high head with some rather large bubbles interspersed in the tan foam. This left a pronounced lacing on the glass and thin islan of the tan foam remained for the duration. The smell is darkly roasted malt, bitter chocolate and prominent alcohol. I had this at just under room temprature and it tasted aggresively bitter, but in a good way. Alchohol hits pretty hard, not really hidden at all. The rosty taste of this reminds me of a good stout, but the mouthfeel is thinner and quite effervescent. This one is good, but lacking in subtlety.
