12oz bottle served in a beer mug.

Black brew with as little head as I got in junior high. Aroma and taste are chock full of roasty coffee and chocolate with espresso coffee bitterness on the finish. Drinkability and mouthfeel are excellent. Not as "dark / rich & sexy" as Diana Ross in her prime but that old time lady on the label does a fine job for me.

Pours a nice thick black with a dark brown 3/4 inch head and some residue from the bottom. Nice fairly sweet smell. You can taste the alcohol. Has a nice thickness to it and typical porter taste. Great mouthfeel. This one competes with the best from Europe.
