Pours a beautiful dark ruby brown color. Nice toffee colored head which recedes quickly
Smells like big roasted coffee with a hint of vanilla sweetness.
Not really that sweet in the taste. Big roasted malt then a big coffee bitterness, but does leave a sweet aftertaste. Also a bit of chocolate (dark) in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is big and bold with prickly carbonation. Leaves a syrupy film in the mouth.
Overall this is one of the best porters. Not overly sweet like many in the style, but I also wish it were a bit more complex. But hell that's just me being nitpicky. This is an all around great beer and worth seeking out.
