Pours a very dark brown that reveals itself as garnet red when backlit in a narrower glass. Beautiful tan headiness makes me quaff the aroma that is caramel and chocolate and a teeny tiny bit of alcohol... makes me thirsty.
As caramel and mild roast overtake my tastebuds I am thoroughly pleased by the 'middle of the road' mouthfeel (not overly milky, not thin as water; just quite pleasant). A roasty alcohol/coffee flavor resonates for some time, with a mild tart tang. Not intrusive, just recognizable. Makes me think of Sumatra.
Overall impression is a wonderfully rendered porter with some pep. Quite yummy. Headed to the basement to get another bottle.
