A-Pours jet black. Upon closer inspection it is just a really dark brown though, like coffee. There is not much head left after pouring and what is left after setteling is a creamy ring around the sides. Thin and whispy on the inside and a nice dollop in the center.
S-What a great scent. Freshly ground coffee. raw meat, dark chocolate. Smells clean and there is no funky scents going on. I cant do it justice and describe it right, but its awesome.
T-I cant get over how fresh it tastes. The flavors are really pronounced and its so smooth too. I have a hard time describing it becaus everything blends so nicely. The coffee roasted bitterness at the end is very pleasent. As it warms up the beer seems to take on more flavors.
M.F.-Creamy upfront followed by subtle carbonation. Full throughout.
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
