I have been wanting to taste this porter for a long time now, and finally had the opportunity at a recent tasting near my home. From the small tasting, I knew it was imperative that I get myself a bottle. I purchased a bottle today, chilled it tonight, and had it while watching a Phillies game. This porter pours a dark ruby color, which turns to almost black when fully emptied into the glass. Carbonation is minimal, but apparent (more so than I would have expected). Aroma is fantastic, smelling of dark chocolate and malts. Smooth at first, a bitterness becomes apparent after swallowing. Not overwhelming in the least; pleasant and enjoyable. Definitely one of the best porters I've had to date.
