thank you mike for bringing this one back from upstate! enjoyed out of a brooklyn snifter.
a - looks like an 8 ball in a glass with a generous grey white foamy head that bubbled away leaving milkshake like lacing. paint me excited!
s - really well balanced vanilla roasted malt with chocolate. i don't really get the coffee that other's mention, but a hint of a classic porter char is definitely there...but it is more of a thicker burnt smell in the mix. really really well balanced.
t - oh wow. big vanilla at first, followed by roasted chocolate malt. the roastiness heats up and then slides out with a lush vanilla. reminiscent of vicotry at sea.
m - if it wasn't for the mouth, i'd swear this was a stout. nice robust char...pretty full bodied for a porter while still holding onto a hint of a porter's thinness.
o - overall, possibly the best porter i've ever had?
