Bottle into shaker pint. Packaging was dated mid-January.

Pours dark ruby brown, bordering on black, with a thin, soapy khaki head. Settles quickly into a thin, soapy cap with a bit of delicate lacing. Nice tiger stripes as the glass recedes.

Nose is fruity, lightly roasty underneath, just a bit nutty. Subtle.

Taste is smooth, with a nutty, lightly roasty quality where the oatmeal is actually fairly perceptible in the flavor as well as the mouthfeel. Light chocolate and a bit of roasty astringency, with a light hop bitterness on the long finish, just a wee bit leafy. Nicely rounded.

Smooth and silky mouthfeel, medium-full in body with a silky carbonation.

Overall, a nice beer, and ridiculously drinkable. I was 1/3 through the review when I realized the glass was 3/4 empty. Can be fairly inconsistent in bottle format, but nice nonetheless when you get a good bottle.

I am a huge fan of porters and this brew is no exception. The appearance is dark dark brown...you would think its black until you hold it to light. The head is a off white...almost tan colored. Smell is just what you expect of a porter, kind of a caramel, chocolate, creamy smell with a hint of bitterness. Taste is just as it smells. Up front you get a nice milk like taste with chocolate undertones with a touch of bitterness at the finish. Very good brew indeed!
