First off, I am surprised and delighted to see that this is bottled, or at least once was.

A: Pours a nice ruby red in a small glass, black in a pint glass, with a brown head.

S: Roasted malt, medium-roast coffee and chocolate notes in the nose.

T: Flavor is the same roasted malt, coffee and chocolate (though definitely dark chocolate in the flavor), and it has a great roasty aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: Definitely recommended. A great example of the porter style.
