Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a snifter.

A - Poured a deep brown, thin, beige head.

S - Lots of malt, mostly chocolate. Little bit of breadiness

T - Lots of malt flavors interacting here. Smooth chocolatey sweetness (not too much), scotch-ale-esque smokiness, a bit of toast, and a slight biscuit-y edge. All of the flavors are a bit muted.

M - Medium body, maybe a little thin for what I'm tasting here.

O - Nice mix of sweet and hearty flavors. Solid porter.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

A- Deep brown, near black. Light brown head, but doesn't retain well. Speckles of lacing.

S- Strong roast, coffee, slight chocolate.

T- Roast, coffee, slight residual sweetness. A bit of brown sugar.

M- Medium-full body, fits style well. Nice roasty bitterness.

O- Solid porter. Good mild and roasty character.

Just okay. Minimal head, and not a lot of nose. Taste, however, is pretty good. Some coffee & cocoa, but not intense. Smooth, not a lot of mouthfeel. Overall very drinkable, just not terribly notable.
