Appetizer: almost no carbonation with a black-red brown appearance; mildly sweet aroma

Entree: smooth initial taste (similar to Founder's Porter I sampled just prior so maybe biased), with less mildly harsh aftertaste, which dissipates nicely / better as compared

Dessert: better than Founder's, still behind Deschutes, and comparable (albeit differing since vanilla) to Linenkugel's Snowdrift.

Each his/her own, so your call.

Dark brown, semi-opaque. Absolutely zero head after an aggressive pour.

Mild aroma of espresso and tobacco. Roasted nuts. Lactose tartness.

Roasted almonds, toast and coffee bitterness. Hint of molasses. Piney, earthy hop. Descent balance. Sour aftertaste.

Medium bodied; rough, grainy texture. Harsh carbonation.

This beer is just not that good.

Sampled a 12 ounce bottle on 11/25/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours almost a full black with some orange hues. A very tiny tan head was seen and left some spotty lacing when sipped. The aroma is of roasted malt and coffee. Taste was that with some bitter chocolate as a finish BUT actually pretty easy to drink. Lots of coffee flavor actually with perfect carbonation. Over all pretty decent porter and good for the colder months.
