Classic DA slick black with a moderate but surprisingly persistent frothy, uniform tan blanket slowly settling to a creamy quarter pipe collar.

Smell delivers port with aplomb--woody, nutty, nougatty and a touch of aged red fruit. This would be wholly commendable, if not for a slight hint of metal. Some graham and chocolate bring up the rear as it warms.

Taste is even better and delivers even more of the port character which is pretty wonderful. Not that I'm expecting oloroso sherry, but it delivers similar notes of nutty nougat and woody, viscous red wine with dark fruit and charred oak Tootsie Roll at the end. Dark App always leaves room for additional character to be picked up, and this one works quite well.

The body is medium-light, slick and silky with a light carbonation, finishing semi-dry with a light sting.
