A- Very dark brown, almost black, light ring of head around the edges of the glass

S- Strong aromas of coffee, smells like fresh ground coffee beans

T- Tastes very much like a cup of coffee, roasted malt flavors come in around the middle and carry through to the end, finish is light coffee flavor with lots of roasted malt. A little on the sweeter side, limited bitterness

M- Smooth with light carbonation, moderate-light in body and very drinkable

O- One of the better coffee-oriented beers that I've had, the coffee flavors are in check enough and the porter itself is enjoyable. Certainly worth a try.
