What a splendid porter. It is perfectly balanced all around and extremely drinkable. Just what I was looking for in a porter.

The appearance is as expected plus a lovely head. The aroma is a hint sweeter and roastier than expected. The taste similarly satisfies with perfect balance. Just a bit of roastiness. The aftertaste is a nice linger.

On top of all that it is reasonably priced and very drinkable. A great drink.

Poured from a bottle dated enjoy by 12/10/13 into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint (also in a snifter, which I preferred).
Appearance - Black, just a touch of light coming through. Not much head or lacing.
Smell - I like the chocolate and roasted coffee bean aroma, but it's a touch too weak.
Taste - some chocolate, coffee, and a hint of smokey flavor, but this one needs something more.
Feel - medium body; standard for the style.
Overall - good price point for a good porter, you could do much worse.
