This beer had more foam than any other beer I've ever seen, which is saying something. Even without a vigorous pour, it tripled in volume (which meant first, a good amount of spillage, followed by a couple of secondary pours to finish off the bottle - I'm not sure whether to be impressed or slightly alarmed). The flavor was slightly more fruity than most stouts or porters but not bad.

12 oz. bottle without a date stamp poured into a nonic glass. Very dark brown, nearly black, with slight ruby highlights when held to the light. Moderate retention on a thick, creamy tan head. Excellent sticky lacing.

Very roasty black malt character, but no toast/burnt aromas. Sweet chocolate and a bit of coffee. Slightly doughy in the background with a bit of caramel/toffee and a rich Munich-like maltiness.

Flavor is similar to the nose, but doesn't follow directly. Dry and roasty with bitter dark chocolate. A bit of an earthy hoppiness that was hidden in the aroma by the big, rich malts. A little doughy with a dry, roasty, lightly astringent finish.

Medium body and moderate carbonation. Interesting mouthfeel... a bit dry and bitter but also very creamy - oats, perhaps?

A decent robust porter. I wonder if mine may be a little old due to the hoppy bitterness but the lack of hops in the aroma, though without a date I can't really be sure. A good if not remarkable beefy, roasty porter.
