Serving from a 12oz. bottle into a nonic pint.
Best by date: 06-14-11
Color is a dark brown or black with ruby edges on the glass. Luxurious tan head 3 fingers high gave way to very good lacing.
Nice aromas of coffee and chocolate from the dark malts. Also a fair amount of smokiness is present, presumably from the roasted barley.
Taste is of toasted malts and dark, bittersweet chocolate. A smooth, creamy beer. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter, like coffee. Medium-full body with a medium level of carbonation.
Overall, a very well-crafted porter - one of the best I've had.
