A-Pours quite black. No visible light penetration. Pours viscous as well. Large, finger-high head that retains well. Larger head surprisingly leaves little lacing.

S-Dark chocolate, a bit of smoke, and roasted coffee. An anise/black licorice aroma comes out too. A bit of dark fruitiness. Alcohol is noticeable as well too. Quite aromatic and also quite lovely.

T-Now that's a porter! Coffee, nuts, loads of chocolate, and some black licorice wallop the palate. A bit of smokiness and also a slight lactose flavor. The flavor finishes with a surprisingly potent grassy hop wave. Love the herbal/grass/earthy hop finish. Very complex. Alcohol masked quite well but you can still tell this is a big bold beer.

M-Full bodied with some seriously mellow carbonation. Feel is slick. Mildly bitter because of the coffee and hop flavors. Rich body and feel.

O/D-Smuttynose's beers are up and down with me. Some of their Big Beer Series I really wasn't a fan of. However, this company knows how to brew some seriously awesome porters. This is up there with Finest Kind IPA as the best of their beers. Big, complex, rich, and delicious. Great beer, and at $5.75 a 22 oz., this is a relative deal.
