Bottle to pint glass.

Aroma is chocolaty, toasty, smells great.
Appearance is dark black with medium Tan head. White globules of sediment hover and make it look sloppy.
Taste is smooth coffee and chocolate. Toasted barley. Raisin and fig late.
Full Bodied mouthfeel.
An overall nice porter.

From a bottle on a sunset cruise on Chesapeake Bay.

Deep and rich coffee and chocolate taste. Very nice mouthfeel.
