Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a tulip glass.

A: A finger of creamy tan head tops a jet black, opaque beer. Good lacing.

S: Neutral. Sourish malts. Boring and bland.

T: Unexpectedly delicious. Rich, sweet coffee-chocolate malts. The Philz is topnotch in this beer, and the depth of flavor is reminiscent of a less intense Peche Mortel or somesuch. Almost like a dessert. A decadent, rewarding porter to be highly praised.

M: Smooth and light. Touch of tartness.

O: Enjoyable porter. I would recommend, if not have again.

Served in a nonic glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Thin brown to light black body. Head is off-white to tan color dropping slowly with sticky lacing. Rising maybe quarter of an inch off the initial pour.

Smell: Ligt coffee with touch of malts which dissipates a bit.

Taste: malts and coffee. Bitter and touch of sour. Could be sweet but the malts slightly overpower the brew.

Mouth: Medium bodied. Light stickiness considering its blended in coffee.

Overall: Descent brew and not the worst porter I've had but definitely not the best. Worth grabbing if you see it though
