Absolutely black color with one finger of tan five minute head. Some rings of lace.
Smell is coffee smoke a touch of molasses.
Taste is bitter coffee some smoke a touch of molasses and a strong bitterness from the hops.
Mouthfeel is medium with proper carbonation. The finish is boldly bitter and medium dry.
Overall a different take on the style. The sweetness I normally expect from this style is beat down by the char and bitter aspect. If you love the bitter end of the spectrum give this try.

Had this at alefort on tap. same notes:

Smell is good. Not overly strong but there is some coffee coming through on a low level. Look dark as in black. A little head that ends up ringing the tumbler glass I am drinking out of. I expected more head. Ok considerable more head wanted. Taste is light on the coffee with earth tones showing throug on the nose. . Maybe a little coriander on the tail end Feel. Co2 yeah. Alot of it. This effected the taste and lead to a stomach ache after five drinks. The feel is killing this beer for me. Overall. Not in my top 10 porters but will stay on my drink list since it is a decent porter and local

Bottle picked up today at the COOP ... Don't remember the price, but it wasn't too expensive for a 22. Poured into my small CC goblet.

Short lasting dark tan head leaves little in the way of a cap, but somehow decent lacing shows for the entire glass. The brew isn't exactly black... instead a deeeep dark brown that only shows its clarity when held to a light.

Nose is pretty good.... a nice mix of chocolate and light toasty maltiness... whaffs of smoke show when swirled and I am concentrating. Hops are there as a backbone, but I can't really discern much more than their light presence.

Good flavor packed into a smaller ABV porter... more cocoa and black malt than the nose led me to believe... there seems to be a touch of dry dark caramel essence... pretty clean... again the hops are more of a bitter balance... not getting much in the way of real hop flavor.

Mouthfeel is bigger than a normal 5.5 ... like some oats or maybe a bit of rye was thrown into the mix. Carbonation is light but certainly within style guidelines.

I am surprised... I normally don't care for standard porters... but I liked this one quite a bit... sessionable even.
