A - Looks pretty standard in the snifter. Deep, dark, almost black... brown with a wispy off-white head. Nothing amazing, nothing off.
S - Troegs wins for best-smelling porter I've ever whiffed. Huge chocolatey malts coupled with a wicked american hop profile make this a real sniffer. I could see where others wouldn't necessarily like this, I find it to be an awesome combination.
T - This is my kinda brew. Dark, heavy malty backbone that's seemingly dry hopped to hell and back. Not outrageously complex, but then again, it doesn't really need to be. Coffee and mild chocolate aspects, with a nice bitter hop finish.
M - A little thin for my liking, but the carbonation is pretty well spot on.
D - Awesome drinkability... this is another absolute winner from Troegs.
Notes: Between this and Nugget Nectar, I'm a jealous boy. I think Troegs is distributing to Ohio now, and giving me another reason why I need to make a drive down there. Lucky dogs!

A- deep, deep brown. Got about one finger of light tan head from the pour. It doesn't last long but does leave some nice lacing from the circumferential remnants.
S-earthy hops and some black liquorice.
T- there's a nice roasted chocolate malt flavor with a hint of astringency from the alcohol. A little of the hops balances it all out
M- a little bit carbonation dances across your palate and it's not as full as other porters I've had. Not as smooth.
O- Definitely not a bad porter. My complaints are probably more personal preference.
