Poured into a DFH Pint Glass
A- DeepDeepDeep dark brown, ruby color- almost black, but a little light does get through. Foamy beige one finger head, with very nice retention.
S- *NICE* malty, chocolate, and a hint of dried fig- and very slight (subtle) hop notes. Has more of a chocolate stout smell than a porter.
T- Mmmmm...notes of malt and chocolate, fuller body for a porter.
M- Taste compensates for an average mouthfeel on this brew- not heavy, but a bit flat.
D- Very good, very drinkable. As the alcohol content is not high, this is easily a repeatable cool weather brew- when it's too warm for a heavy Imperial Stout, but too cool to NOT have something darker!
