Black body, off-white head recedes.
Burned coffee, roasted malts.
The edges are sweet like toffee or molasses but coffee's the focus. Outside of that, nothing pops out at me. The distinct nose does help but taste is sill lacking. Hardly off-putting but hardly distinctive.
Some more density would go a long way.

Big thanks to Jeff for this one. 12oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.
Pours pitch black with just the thinnest mocha head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is stringy, spotty and sparse. No legs. Pretty average.
Nose is molasses, chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa and liquorice. Moderately aromatic. Good.
Opens roasted malt, chocolate and cocoa. Coffee and espresso in the middle with some molasses and more dark chocolate towards the end. Finishes roasty with a light tartness. Coffee and chocolate finish. Pretty straightforward but tasty.
Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slightly prickly but smooth in the mouth and silky going down. Messy finish with a lingering, filmy aftertaste. Solid.
A pretty middle of the road porter that... to its credit, is very quaffable. Certainly worth having and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it.

12oz bottle, bottled 25 Oct 2013 that I picked up today at Riley's to try before the recently released Devil over a Barrel (the partially BA version of this beer). Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 4/17/2014.
A- Opaque dark cola brown body. Doesn't illuminate at all. Comes with a one finger off-white head. Good retention, halfway sticky lacing.
S- Lots of rich black coffee, baker's chocolate, roast malt. Milk chocolate sweetness, almost like a lactose addition. Smells better than I expected.
F- Black drip coffee, milk chocolate, roast malts and a rich nuttiness that complements the coffee well. A lactose-like sweetness balances the coffee bitterness on the backend.
M- Medium bodied, on the thinner side as it is slightly watery in feel, but not in flavour. Good carbonation, expected for the style. Finish is nicely balanced- not too dry nor is it watery, but it is also simultaneously sweet (milk chocolate sweetness) and bitter (black coffee). Would have liked the body to be more substantial, especially as this has adjunct oatmeal.
O- Very good imperial porter with a very rich malt profile that blends coffee in very well. A very good buy at $10/4-pack. Looking forward to trying the partially BA version of this.

4.3/5 rDev +2.6%
A - Black, with dark brown highlights, and short head of light tan, and slight lacing.
S - Mostly roasty, but with some coffee.
T - Fat coffee and roasted malts and toasted grains. Mid-point is bright, with a subtle sourness and coffee acidity. Close runs out with a bitter line, and lovely, abiding toasted malt.
M - Moderate feel, silky, but still fairly light.
O - A rock solid porter with a big coffee bite. Tasty and fun, a delicious brew that makes me wish it were part of Tyranena's standard line-up.
