Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Rich brown black with two fingers of thick foamy tan head, small on lacing.
S - Dark chocolates, smoke, burnt caramel, some dried apricot.
T - Really nice rich flavor, lots of dark and bitter roasted chocolates, a nice hint of smokiness, even a little ashy, slight earthy bitterness, a little coffee, dried fig and apricot.
M - Creamy silky smooth texture, velvety
O - Excellent porter, lots of complexity in the flavor, it really just opens up from there.

Next to Edmund FItgerald this tops the list for my everyday porter

Pours a dark black with a thick tan head

faint chocolate and coffee notes in the nose

the taste is similar, nothing is overpowering - coffee, dark chocolate, a lingering bitterness, and an almost coca-cola like flavor to it.

Light/watery mouthfeel which is typical for this style but I think it could use a little more body.

Overall a great porter - especially if you're going to have more than a couple. The watery mouthfeel and balanced subtle flavors allow you to toss a couple back without feeling weighed down and having your palate overpowered.
