Across the board solid - Dark brown pour with finger of frothy, clingy tan head. Rich aromas of roast and cocoa. Same in the flavor, though slightly thinner than expected, with a very smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Highly drinkable, no bad aspects, and undetectable alcohol. Fine porter.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a jet black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head. It dissipated at a nice pace allowing a nice substantial lace glossing along the sides of the beer.
The smell had a robust roasty coffee bean up front with a low key amount of cocoa bean underneath.
The taste was mainly roasty with an underscore of the cocoa beans to make an effort to balance. Does it? Well, its almost there. Subtle roasty aftertaste leads into the finish.
The mouthfeel sits about a light to medium with a nice sessionable feel surrounding a tame coating of carbonation clinging to my tongue. With that in mind, I find that this one seems to accept a mild creaminess trying to come out. I liked it for the most part.
Overall, I liked this American styled porter. I'd have it again.

Pours dark, almost black with a tan head. Smells of dark roasted coffee and chocolate malts. Tastes roasty with coffee and dark chocolate flavors prominent. Medium body with mild carbonation. Feels creamy and chewy with undetectable alcohol. Overall a really good porter.

Oh my, where shall I begin? Pours a nice dark brown, nearly black with a frothy, creamy, chocolatey head. Head dissipates slightly leaving a nice thin layer. Aroma is coffeeish, chocolateish and slightly sourish. Also some malty and hop notes. Nice level of carbonation. Thiner than what I expected, but perhaps my tears of joy has diluted it slightly. Amen.

Pours a deep, dark and opaque brown/black with a medium tan head that quickly fades and leaves behind a fair amount of lacing.
Aroma is chocolate and roast coffee.
Taste is mostly dark chocolate with a slight acidity and a lingering, bitter roasted coffee finish.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin.
Not up there with the best American Porters.
