Pours a deep brown/almost black with chestnut highlights and a fluffy, creamy tan head. Very pretty. Upfront it smells of coffee.

First impression is of a mellow, twangy, semi-sweet porter with well-developed undertones of brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, and a touch of salt. Medium-bodied. Creamy, smooth finish; very silky and goes back like no one's business. Ever-so soft hop note rounds out the finish. Very tasty, extremely satisfying, and strikes me as food-friendly -- both main courses and desserts could work with this.

Delicious and smooth, this is a fantastic session porter. Well-balanced and a porter lover's dream. Excellent.
