A: poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass, dark orange brown with a huge tan head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: chocolate, nuts, tons of malt, light coffee, brown sugar, toffee, caramel

T: tons of coffee and dark chocolate flavor, sweet malts abound balance by just enough lemon citrus hops to keep the sweetness in check, bittersweet chocolate, toffee, hazelnuts

M: medium with nice carbonation

O: a beautiful porter true to the style, the body is light enough for it not to be a stout, well done

pours a dark brown with a thin head that immediately poofs. nose; dark cola, creamer & hops. taste; chocolate malt, earthy hops, cola/caramel, dry cocoa, & a licorice/anise spice. light char on the end. medium carbonation & mouthfeel. a good porter, but it has the same issue i have with all porters - the lack of complexity makes it seem almost like drinking a spiced cola halfway through the glass.
