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.

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass.
A: Pours a burnt mahogany, with a large bubbly tan head. The intensity of the head dies out quickly, leaving substantial amounts of tan sticky lace. A wonderful creamy cap remains until the end.
S: Some roasted malts along with a pronounced hop characteristic. A little bit of caramel and some dark, bitter chocolate. Pretty average.
T: Lots of roasted malts meshed with a slight hop bite. A bit of brown sugar and dark chocolate underneath. Ends with a very mild roasted black coffee flavor. Not as brash as I had hoped, but still solid and enjoyable.
M: This one feels incredible in the mouth. A very mild carbonation adds just enough bite initially, but really allows the creaminess of this brew to shine through. It's not a huge bodied brew, but it's full and silky smooth.
O: While I'll admit that there's better porters out there, Troegs offers an extremely good example of the style. While it's not as bold and in-your-face as I had hoped, it doesn't lack enjoyability and this brew could be a great gateway into the style. Definitely recommended for fans of the style and newcomers alike.
