11.2oz bottle from Total Wine - been looking around for this one lately, after hearing the review on Craft Beer Radio - served in a Fuller’s imperial pint glass...
A: Pours a dark brown, with a nice inch of khaki foam; deep garnet when held to light; some specky lace gets left on the glass.
S: Toffee malt aroma; some dark chocolate and caramel, too; roasted grains aren’t too bitter / charred = pretty smooth coffee.
T: Roasted malt / coffee comes out a little more than in the aroma; rich, toasted grains; some bitter chocolate and tobacco / leafy hops on the end.
M: Full bodied; lower carbonation; very smooth and silky.
D/O: A satisfying porter for sure; ample drinkability and smooth; traditional and tasty.
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
