Appearance: Pours a deep brown with two fingers of khaki head from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The head fades relatively slowing, lining the glass with brown lacing.

Smell: Both smoky and sweet, with hints of dark chocolate and a bit of coffee. I get notes of roasted barley as well and this is a delicious smelling porter.

Taste: More of the aroma with a solid malty presence balanced by chocolate, caramel, and toffee flavors. There is a bit of roasty flavor as well and just a hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and amazingly smooth for a porter, this is one I could come back to again and again. Mild bitterness and solid carbonation make this creamy and easy drinking.

Overall: I have to say this is one of the top porters that I have had and a perfect representation of the style. This is a beer I could drink a lot of, I just wish it were cheaper.
