Had this on tap at Seymour in Greenfield, MA. The beer had a black appearance with a large, brown head. Aromas were very rich in a milk chocolate smell. The taste followed the nose with a hint of a little burnt coffee. Mouthfeel was decadent; a good dessert beer. Overall, really loved the mouthfeel to this beer.

Ah porter! The precursor to stout and the original dark beer. Like an old porter I've had a busy day and am eager to quench my thirst.

L: Amazing look when poured into pint glass. Dark with a thick tan head that refuses to recede. Heavy lacing as you sip away.
S: A little disappointing. A little bit alkaline; like baking soda? Very little of the tasting notes.
T: World class: Roasted grains, like coffee, toffee, and bittersweet chocolate.
F: Silk smooth with very slight, but pleasant, carbonation.

I could drink a bunch of these. This is nice especially when you compare it to their breakfast stout.

Draft. Decent tan head. Heavy lacing. Light aromas. Balanced chocolate malt, roasted malt. Moderate bitterness. Lightly sweet. Thick and so buttery smooth.
