Appearance: Black glass doesn't hold a head or lace beyond a few spots. Glows a bit brown with back light, but pretty opaque.

Aroma: Mild wood / pecan shell note on top of a burnt grain and sweet malt base.

Taste: Balanced start goes a bit burnt and lightly nutty (pecan) with a grainy finish. A little astringent in the finish, but it's a well crafted char.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation, oily texture, fairly clean if drying finish.

Overall: I'm not a Porter fan, but I always try beers from styles I don't like because I occasionally find the exception to the rule. This transcends style and is an experience onto itself. Makes me yell "Texas" a lot, I like it.
