12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown black color with a little vision of bubbles coming up through the glass when held up to the light. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank drank too.

Smell: Bready and sweet oats, roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate, ashy smoke, and some caramel.

Taste: Same as above. Some earthy notes and bitterness in there.

Mouthfeel: Some bitterness, smooth, light bodied, low to medium carbonation, and slight chewy notes.

Overall: The oatmeal brings some subtle notes to this beer. It goes in a stout more often, but this one is a keeper even though you don't find it in a porter.

Poured into a snifter. Thanks, Darren.

A: Opaque brown with a tan half-finger head that dissipates fast. Curtain-y lacing.

S: Chocolate malts do a duet with caramel. Nice.

T: Smokey and robust. Dark chocolate, malts and caramel with a pinch of peat on the finish. A bit of hops pop up, too, but not offensively bitter. Sweet. Smooth.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: A very nice surprise. Would drink more of this little beauty.

A- lighter color than I expected for a porter. Poured dark amber when held up to light.
S - hints of coffee, toffee and malt. nice
T - A touch sharper than I expected but nice - would be good with food and could put away a few
M- smooth but not too heavy. very drinkable

Overall a nice beer - received in a trade and very glad I got the chance to try
