22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Poured dark brown, nearly black, with a light brown head. The head soon reduces to a durable partial coat and ring. Moderate lacing.

Smells sweet and delicious. Some pecan pie filling with cinnamon. Moderately strong. Only faint grains.

Less sweet than it smells, there's a solid layer of medium and dark roasted grains with a bit of caramel and dark chocolate. A hint of roasted pecans, but wuite faint, as is the coffee in the finish. Near equal sweet/bitter by the finish. Nice nutty/malty aftertaste.

Medium body; very good carbonation level; very smooth; dry finish.

O: Lightly boozy nose and feel, but still drinks like 4-5% ABV brew. A distinct, remarkably smooth Amer. Porter. Recommended.
