Look - Upon first medium pour, very dense, one inch, mocha head. This eventually dissipated into a mismatch of small bubble sizes. The curtain of fine carb does its best to hang on the sides as the beer disappears.
Smell - Heavy to Medium roast, and light char are apparent in the smell. These two are mingling with very light sweetness and the most very faint vanilla aroma.
Taste - Balanced and bold porter with a fine mix of roast and hops.
Feel - Nice and smooth. Body is bold.

Overall - This is a quality crafted porter.

I have had a few beers from Maine Beer Company and they have each been excellent. And I've been looking forward to trying this one. It pours a very dark black coffee color with a creamy mocha colored thick ring of foam that leaves wonderful lacing on the walls of the glass.

The beer smells of dark roasted malt, brown sugar, and faintly fruity. The taste is more robust than the scent with a very heavy mouthfeel. It begins sweet with a taste of raisin and finishes with a bittersweet pleasingly burnt caramel. The finish lingers nicely begging for the next sip. A very robust and straightforward take on the porter style, but extremely well done in doing so. I wouldn't call it unique, but it is an wonderful example of the style.

500ml bottle: This one pours an opaque, dark brown color. There was a dense, crea,y tan head on it that lingers a bit and leaves some lacing. The aroma is nice. Roasted malts and some coffee. Hints of some caramel and chocolate. The taste is good. Some roasted malts and coffee notes on top. Subdued chocolate in the background. Slightly biter: no sweetness at all. A very nice beer.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass. Bottle brought to me by mr-jj. 11-10-15.

Pours black with a huge head (spilled over). Head is brown and creamy. Fades fairly quickly to a medium sized head. This had lasts forever. I had to put it in the fridge for over an hour due to a distraction, and it's still there. Smell is roasty yet crisp. Don't get a lot of hops, but it smells like a good porter.

Taste is rich, chocolatey, bittersweet. Really tasty.

Mouthfeel is fairly light bodied, dry, and nice. Overall, very nice beer.

Really nice dark beer with a thick creamy head that leaves gobs of lacing. The aroma is coffee and roasted malts with a sweetness that reminds me of brown sugar. The taste is bitter and sweet with coffee and dark brown sugar. There is a pleasant finishing bitterness. Really solid porter.
