This beer looks black, but when held up to the light, the light shines through a deep black cherry. Very attractive, the head is decent and tan. There is a little clingy lace and a nice ring around the glass, like a glimps of cuff poking out the sleeve of a nice black suite.

There seems to be a deep roasted smell here, malty and a slight smell of alcohol.

The taste of burnt malt dominates this porter. kind of nutty? i dont know. A nice well-rounded tongue presence. not much hops.

This beer taste's hearty, bread in a bottle. I think i like it.

Creamy, espresso-brown head that stays a while. Pours dark reddish/brown with lots of small carbonation bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Earthy smell with strong coffee notes and a kind of sour malt. The scent is not too strong, but pleasant. Big creamy beer that tastes like coffee with slight hoppy overtones. Finishes with more coffee bitterness and then slightly sweet malt. Well-balanced and smooth. This is a filling porter.

A: Pours a translucent deep ruby, slightly brown, with a three-finger fluffy tan head. Tons of lacing all along the glass as the head slowly fades.

S: Coffee and chocolate. Chocolate and coffee. Brown sugar and raisins. Prunes.

T: The front is sweet, but there is a non-unpleasant acrid note due to the roast malt. The center is a sea of chocolate, and the finish is dry and bitter. (Any resemblances between that finish and my personality are purely coincidental.)

M: Surprisingly watery and light in body, in spite of the good carbonation. (There is a heat wave here now, so that's not entirely unwelcome, but it is unexpected.)

D: The expense is the only barrier to this being a perfect session beer.
