Pours a dark brown with a thin head into my glass. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Just another porter.

A whiff of coffee with a bit of cream in the nose. Very enticing.

Robust with a good helping of coffee, toffee and cream. Reminds of the first time I had Otter Creek's Stovepipe Porter. Very different. Alien.

A decent amount of sweet malt lingers at the back of the throat.

This came in a mixed sixer from Ryan & Casey in Greenfield, Mass. Very good, basic, but tasty porter.

This bottle has been in the fridge a long time, so...

Pours an opaque deep brown with amber highlights and a solid 2 inch khaki head that dissipates slowly, leaving substantial lacing.

Aroma is initially nutty, with caramel and chocolate notes highlighting a slightly roasted malty character. Toffee and hints of coffee are evident. A bit of alcohol surfaces as it warms.

Roast malt is the underlying flavor, with notes of walnuts and toffee taking center stage, playing with dark chocolate and subtle coffee tones. The finish is a touch bitter to balance the caramel malt sweetness throughout.

Body is a touch light for a robust porter, and carbonation is moderate.

Overall, a very good example of the style. The roast character is not overwhelming, and alcohol is only evident in the aroma and as a slight warmth. Chocolate malt and nuttiness are well represented. Perhaps a touch sweet.

Rich aroma has notes of caramel, molasses and roast quality coffee with a touch of licorice. It pours an opaque warm sable just a couple whiskers above black and a fairly thick and fluffy light tan head. Flavor has good smoky, molasses, coffee and caramel notes. Dusty texture has slightly above average body but not a whole lot of fizz. This one is worth sniffing out.
