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.

A:
Pours an opaque jet black with a 3+ finger khaki head that eventually settles to a healthy film that hugs the edges. Good retention; lots of whimsical lacing. (4)

S:
Oats and coffee. Caramelized malts, smoke, molasses, dried dark fruits, leather. (4)

T:
Roast malt and milk chocolate. Nuts, toffee, toast, coffee, smoky feel that creeps up your nose. (4.25)

M:
Medium body with a creamy/velvety feel, moderate carbonation, lingering roast sensation, very drinkable yet rich. (4.5)

O:
Very good Porter.
This is a well-made beer and has the great subtle richness that I look for in a beer like this. Like drinking liquid velvet but not suffocating or overly rich in any way.
Pours very nice and presents a pungent but fairly straightforward aroma. The beer drinks amazingly well and has stout-like flavors without being heavy, imposing or thick in any way.
Very good beer that drinks like a champ. Rich but you could easily have a couple three.
Would have again; worth keeping an eye out for. (4.25)
