Enjoyed from the bottle 11/16/2012
Appearance: Pours very dark brown. Edges show up to light. Thick, bit coarse tan head. Great lacing
Aroma: dark Chocolate, raisins, bit of coffee
Taste: roasted barley, but not astringent. Nicely balanced. Dark chocolate notes a little subdued compared to aroma. Smooth French roast coffee comes through.
Mouthfeel: Tiny tingling bubbles, and then an extremely smooth, wet feel, ending with some residual smooth coffee bitter. Not too thick. Really easy drinking
Overall: First sip I thought was a bit thin. Used to stouts. But now that I’ve had a few more, I think it's renewed a love in porters. Could put a lot of these away on a cold day.
