L: Pours bright brown under a very fluffy 2” light tan foam collar with a very fine bead. The collar recedes slowly to a thin film and leaves excellent intricate lace.
S: chocolate and malt aromas.
T: Rich malt flavors with chocolate, a slight nuttiness, a slight tartness on the finish with a bitter hop accent. Nothing burnt or harsh.
F: Very creamy soft palate, medium full body, medium low carbonation.
O: A world class porter.

This brew has the look of coffee, not saying that is a bad thing. I like the color of this brew. The smell of Samuel Smith's The Famous Taddy is rich with roasted grains, malts and hops.
