12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before 4/22/2013. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger fairly dense khaki head with nice retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, toast, toffee, light coffee, light citrus, and earthy hops. Damn nice aromas with nice balance, strength, and complexity. Taste of milk chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, toffee, toast, coffee, cocoa, and light herbal. Light amount of roasted coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, caramel, toast, roasted malt, toffee, coffee, and light herbal on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance of robust flavors with nice roasted malt complexity; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic porter! Fantastic roasted flavor balance and complexity, with some nice hop balance; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering as expected; one of my top favorite porters.
