Everything about this beer screamed that it was a good, solid porter but probably nothing more. It had a lighter dark purple/red color to it. The aroma gave me little and the taste didn't knock me back either. It seemed well balanced with a chocolate flavor at the beginning, a creamy texture in the middle, and a little hoppiness in the finish. Good but nothing spectacular. The porter also went down easily but very rich when warmed up a bit. This beer is rich, dark, and sexy.

Somewhat cloudy jet-black brew forms a frothy, whipped dark tan head atop medium-small bubbles with adequate sheets of lace. Mild to moderate carbonation. Aroma is of cocoa powder, dark semisweet chocolate, medium roast coffee, roasted grains, and a subtle chalkiness. Smells good, but not really anything unique going on here. Mouthfeel is soft with a medium body and roasty, dry finish. Taste starts with some spicy, green flavor hops, melts into rich roasted barley/black patent malt and coffee, followed by a pleasant lingering sweetness in the back of the throat which comes from out of nowhere and balances well with a lightly astringent grainy finish. No noted alcohol presence or off flavors. The acidity brightens as it warms. Quite nice.

Update: $20 for a case direct from the brewery. Whoohoo. Yummy stuff.
