Okay, first actual review, here we go....

A: Pours with 2 finger head that is slightly mocha colored in appearance, and that holds for some time. The beer itself is quite dark and only shows glimpses of amber streaks if you hold it up to the light.

S: Smells very strongly of fresh roasted coffee and a hint of chocolate, not much else to say but that, but that's what I look for in a porter!

T: follows the smell pretty much spot on. Mostly coffee in the taste(not artificial) with a hint of chocolate and perhaps a little vanilla on the back end.

M: Mouthfeel is medium, but for a standard strength porter that's to be expected. Somewhat oily, and slightly creamy finish.

O: A go to when they have it on tap, and one that I've enjoyed many times in the past year and a half or so. Very good porter and I highly recommend. A-
