Nice porter of a dark color with some purple on it. Unfortunately, it doesn't make a good foam.
Nice smell, full of coffe and some dark chocolate.
Taste is similar, with some roasted malts. it begins with the chocolate and then comes a bitter taste with coffe notes.
Mouthfeel is the awesome thing here; it's like a liquor and it's delightful. Not much in the body or carbonation, but nevertheless mouthfell is perfect.
Another thing I shoud say is, except for the smell, there are some resemblances with wine, quite interesting.
