Pours a very dark brown. There is very little head on it dispite my hard pour (felt little bit of a let down). I do remember this having a bigger head on draft so maybe it was something in the bottle or perhaps I poured it shitty. Smells like coffee and a lot of roasted malt. Tastes very strongly of roasted flavors, coffee like bitterness, and very dark chocolate. These mix with a very strong metallic/earthy hop flavor to make a very interesting porter. This is definitely something to have again. Went very well on a rainy day.
Serving type: bottle

A - Deep, dark brown. Sloshes around in the glass nicely with a solid head.
S - Burned sugar, char, peat and roasted malt. Could be fuller.
T - Char, mildly toasted malt. Roastiness and burned caramel. Unfortunately I can't help finding regular porters taste watered down compared to their Imperial brethren.
M - Smooth, and appropriately carbonated. A little thin and watery.
O - An easy-drinking and very sessionable porter which I'd gladly opt for if having a few pints with friends at a pub.
Serving type: on-tap
