What a porter should be. Not a stout, but with a big enough and rich enough body to be something beyond amber or brown. Jet black with a light head it is less viscous as the color would lead you to believe. The aroma is dried fruit and chocolate but, again, not as deep as what would be expected from a darker roast. The flavors are similar. Where you'd might expect something that was boozy and bittersweet, this beer is a scaled back version. Rich, creamy, the roasted malt comes out middle to finish with a bit of acidity in the end. Medium heavy body and lively carbonation.

A: A nice black body on this beer that left a two finger tan head at the top with great lacing retention around the glass as you drank it.

S: Lots of grassy hops up front, and smoke followed by some roasted malts as well as chocolate and some dark coffee note as well at the tailend.

T: At first some smokey bitterness, and then some roasted notes from the malts, the smokeyness is very present, chocolate at the end.

M: A nice warmer, medium mouthfeel, good amount of carbonation.

O:Lots of smokeyness on mine, I drank it a couple months after buying it, but it didnt taste bad at all, very good brew, but would have liked to try it fresh.

Purchased an older bottle of this (6/14/14) for just $5.50.
Can't complain since this beer was amazing

A - SEXY looking deep black opaque nothingness. Very creamy and thick looking with a solid 2 inch plus head in my goblet. Slow retaliation of the head making for a very good mocha color laced ring.
S - Smell is great, mild roasts, candied plums, bittersweet chocolates, and a bit of dry yeasts.
T+M - Taste is as expected in the smell very smooth taste and well rounded for the ABV. Classy.

Overall I may go back and snag another 16 ouncer for 5 bucks. A very smooth porter I would drink again.
