Bottle shared by Curran, thanks man.

Pours a very dark black, with a small half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like chocolate, roasted malt, and a little bit of espresso beans.

This one does not taste at all like its over 9% ABV, I honestly thought it was 5 or 6%. It is very full bodied, and full of flavors- lots of great chocolate flavors, almost like it is brewed with chocolate, when as far as I know it is not. There is also a nice creamy vanilla flavor, with a small amount of espresso bitterness, and moderate sweetness. Really, really nice.

This one has a medium sized body, as befits the unexpected ABV. There is a low amount of carbonation, with a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

This is probably the best English porter I've ever had, but it's probably not very traditional. It tastes awesome, and that's what it counts.
