Pint can poured into a nonic.

Appearance: Pours a solid black with a one-inch tan head that recedes to film fairly quickly. Lacing is moderate. Carbonation hard to gauge because it's so dark.

Aroma: Coffee and dark, bitter chocolate dominate the nose. Fairly well hopped, too. Some booze is noticeable.

Taste: Follows the nose, and it's pretty terrific. It's a deep, rich, somewhat burnt-tasting porter full of bitter black coffee and chocolate. Pretty excellent porter - not fancy, but an excellent representation of the style.

Mouthfeel: Thick, solid body. Not watery at all. Has the ideal level of richness and fullness for a good porter.

Overall: One of my favorite porters. It's off the seasonal market right now, and I'm hopeful it comes back, because it really hits all the notes for a strong, flavor-packed porter. It has nearly 100 years of history behind it, and deserves a more heralded place in brewing history.
