Served from bottle into a sampler shaker. Poured dark brown with a minimal off-white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, chocolate, subtle coffee, and cream. The flavor was of roasted malt, cream, subtle coffee, earth, and earth hop. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. I really enjoyed the cream aspect I got on this one as it really did a nice job of balancing out the subtle coffee bitterness I got on this one. The aroma on this one pretty much let you know what you were in for on the flavor. Decent example of the style that I would suggest to a new Porter drinker.

Bottle - Poured a deep black brew with a nice head but lack some retention. Carbonation is average with a medium body (I was expecting a richer and ''fuller'' body). Aroma of chocolate is very subtle. Taste is a mix of roastiness, chocolate, and coffee with just enough bitterness at the end. Overall, this is a good beer but I still believe it might be a bit overrated.
