12 oz bottle, poured into a snifter at room temperature.

A: Pours a seemingly black hole singularity black, but upon shining a light through the beer, tiny highlights of pure red make it through. Forms a finger-thick head of very pale tan, which dissipates quickly into a ring.

S: That's definitely a coffee porter smell. What seems to be a medium-roast coffee odor mingles with some earthy peat and faint chocolatey notes.

T: Medium roast coffee does indeed meet earthy peat in this action-packed thriller starring mostly medium roast coffee and earthy peat. While the flavors aren't bad, the flavor profile is rather simple.

M: Creamy and full, avoiding the watery finish that plagues many a porter.

O: Not a bad porter. Not particularly complex, but solid for what is there.

Probably better than I give it credit for, I just like my coffee hot and my beer cold.

Yes, I just broke all rules of reviewing a beer. Let's chalk it up to me being a novice at this and hope I learn to put a little more thought into my next review.

Cheers
