Look: Deep dark brown in color; appears black in the glass. Pours with a 1+ light brown head that dies down leaving a thin, uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer. A few spec of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Huge aroma of roasted dark coffee; hints of grain and sweet black licorice. Delicious and inviting.

Taste: Dark coffee; loads of black licorice; bitter finish.

Feel: Mild fizzy sensation from the carbonation at start; progresses on to velvety finish. Thinner-side of medium body.

Overall: Overall very good porter. Interesting finish. The finish was a little too bitter finish for my tastes.

Had on tap at Beef and Brew in Geneva, NY. Huge toasty porter; creamy and so easy to sip. Lots of accents of chocolate, coffee and maybe a hint of tobacco. Very nice well crafted ale.

all over Geneva and surrounding areas is this gem of a porter from naked dove brewing. its rich and black on the pour, with a permanent inch of coffee brown head that doesn't quit one bit. notes of coffee grounds and black roasted barley come off the nose, and so does a greater alcoholic presence than the listed 5.5% abv. char and ash, post fire complexity of flavor. melted chocolate and birch wood come to mind as I sip, as does a great organic richness that's hard to explain. it feels healthy to me, like my body is ready for more and more, nutritious. full bodied as they come, creamy and expansive in feel. a little bitter as it warms up, but perfectly balanced out of the tap. I have very little to critique about this beer, maybe just a touch heavy and a touch sweet at the outset, but these things grew on me, and I found this to be the best of the naked dove beers I had. its up there with any porter brewed in the united states these days, Edmond Fitzgerald included. a nitro tap would suit this extremely well.
