Drinking this from a bottle into a SA Perfect Pint.
A- Nice dark amber, opaque in the wider part of the glass. Poured a 1 finger head which didn't last long, but rings of foam are clinging to the glass all the way down.
S- Coffee beans, malt and a little chocolate.
T- My first sip reminded me of the flavor of the thin brown sauce you put on Chinese pot stickers. I never realized that stuff is so malty. Anyhow, the beer has strong undertones of coffee and malt, followed by some chocolate and some hops. The finish is dry and on the bitter side, with a little smokiness noted on the tongue.
M- This seems a little thin in the mouth, I would prefer it a little creamier, but if it were it may cross over into "stout" territory.
D- This is a totally drinkable, highly enjoyable porter. To me this is the benchmark fo the American Porter style.
