A- Pours dark brown with small tan head.
S- Strong espresso and dark chocolate coming off of this. Bit of a burnt toast nose to it also.
T- Espresso, Chocolate, bit of creamy sweetness also. Follow the smell, there is a bit of a burnt aftertaste.
M- Creamy and quite smooth, leaves mouth satisfied
D- Easily put back. Goes down rather easy.

This is a really great example of what a Porter should be.
