Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Half Acre tulip.

A- pours black with a 2" dark tan heat. Big wall and trailing of lacing remains on the glass.

S- big roast, dark chocolate, and some coffee.

T- semi-sweet dark chocolate, roasted malts, and some bitter coffee.

M- medium body and carbonation. Nice creamy and smooth feel.

O- very good porter and I am not a big porter fan. Nice roast with just a touch of sweetness, and very creamy feel.

Bottle -> pint glass

Nice dark black with subtle brown and ruby. Thin mocha colored head faded quickly for me.

Coffee, malt, and hint of vanilla on nose.

Lots of coffee and smoke up front. Soft notes of cedar and bourbon, but very subtle. Rich malty finish.

Medium to full body with rich mouthfeel. Leaves you wanting another sip.

Quite delicious overall. An excellent porter. Perfect for winter warming.
