Well, this is very, very good. I tried the Porter about 18 or so months ago, and literally just picked up two bottles the other day, reviewing my second now.

This was bottled on 12/24/12, and pours a delicious super dark brown/black coffee color.

Smell is more than appropriate; Roasty/toasty malt and barley. Tobacco, hint of leather and grass.

Taste is similar. Super balanced and nearly perfect taste for a porter. This is incredible creamy.

Feels almost like a milk stout. It's a tad bit sweet, balanced with hops and light carb on the end.

overall, this could be my favorite porter, very good. My impression is that it needs to be fresher but not necessarily within weeks -- I'm thinking within 6-8 months. This is very good. Cheers.

This is an overall great beer! Got it in a trade with Rohkey. Thanks Chris! Poured this beer in my small Struise chalice. Pitchdark fluid with a very nive head. Good starter. The head disappears after a while leaving some nice lacing in the glass.

Smell is inviting but i can not detect much. Taste is with coffee. The alcohollevel is good on this one. Very good mouthfeel, not any carbonation but that is not important in a beer like this!
