Would've sworn this was black as night when I had one at Clark's Ale House, but back home I see ruby highlights under the two-finger head.
Smell is beautifully roasty/smoky. Dark chocolate and cherries. Incredible.
Hits me first with dark chocolate, dark bread and hints of fruitiness. Roastiness is huge, with smokiness and a trace of hop bitterness in the finish. I love this. It's blasphemy, but I'd grab one of these before a Geary's porter.
Despite a good amount of carbonation, this feels smooth, thick, chewy. If this heavy, smooth, roasty beer is a porter, then I have no idea what the difference is between a porter and a stout. Not that I'm complaining.
