Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint Glass

As a major fan of porters, this one is about as good as they get. The pour is a beautiful mahogany brown, almost ebony with a luscious full two finger head which eventually fades to a small retention ring. Lacing is impressive too. All the great porter notes are present, coffee, chocolate, toffee, caramel, licorice, roasted nuts. The taste, easy drinking, follows the nose almost perfectly. What is really impressive is that flavors are very subtle and move seamlessly from one to the other culminating in a delightful roasted bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full, but not thick, and satisfying. This one is a must for fans of porters.

This is a wonderful taste experience. It pours a perfectly dark black chocolately coffee appearance that exceeds even Guinness. Smell is that of roasted coffee, exceptional. Taste is pretty good, bitter, with pronounced hints of mocha. It has a very thick consistency, somewhat heavy but still really good. Overall this is pretty drinkable, very nice change from ordinary beer that is for sure.

11.2 oz brown bottle, best before 05 April 11.

poured into pint glass an opaque dark deep brown, with garnet highlights when held up to light. white frothy head.
big chocolate and coffee flavors in the aroma. taste is roaty malts, bittersweet chocolate, espresso. not as sweet as the aroma.
mouthfeel is thinner to medium body. about average for a porter.

great drinkability, classic example of the style.
