appearance - Poured into a goblet at around 55 degrees F, as recommended. Head was around half an inch and a nice creamy tan color. It did not dissipate to fast. Lacing is decent. Deep brown hues, near black when looking through the glass.
smell - Malt, roasted malt. Toffee and coffee. Lovely.
taste - Head is creamy. Roasted malts are upfront and very good. They give off this delicious roasted coffee flavor. Finish is bittersweet and smooth, just slightly creamy. Aftertaste is of roasted malt and coffee beans.
mouthfeel - Nice enough carbonation to give the brew texture but not mask the flavors it holds. Somewhat creamy finish. Just a touch on the thin side.
overall - A great porter. I recommend it to many.
