16.9 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a near-black with a huge three-finger tan head. Pretty heavy lacing left behind.

Aroma: Cocoa, coffee with milk, vanilla, faint licorice, less-faint dark fruits.

Taste: Wow, this is a flavorful porter. I love this style, so I'm probably biased in its favor, but this strikes me as an excellent beer. The coffee, cocoa and vanilla flavors are all present up front, with some dark fruit and hop bitterness in the background. Some nice booze burn on the way down. This beer has everything I want out of a "big" dark beer. Lots of flavor and depth.

Mouthfeel: This beer is a sturdy porter, but it's far from thick and sludgy. Approachable for a fairly hefty dark beer. Velvet smooth, too.

Overall: Terrific beer from a great brewery. My favorite of their stable so far.
