Pours a brown so deep as to appear black producing 2 fingers of thick, frothy, somewhat lasting, mocha head which diminishes to a hint of surface cap and thin collar ring leaving streaks of wispy lace. Aroma is cocoa, brown sugar, vanilla, faint roast & nuts. The taste is slightly sweeter than the nose expressing itself as cocoa, roast, caramel, molasses, a little char & a roasted nuttiness with hints of vanilla. The cocoa, roast, caramel, molasses & nuts become more robust from the midsip through the finish. Cocoa, roast & a pleasant bitterness make up the aftertaste. No alcohol presence in either nose or mouth. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy & slick with a faint prickle.

Pours dark black with a mocha colored head that dissipates leaving some residual tan slick on the top of the beer with a ring of mocha foam along the outside.

Smell is exactly what you'd expect from an American Porter. Roasted malts, some hints of chocolate, and a slight hoppy note on the back end.

Taste has the roasted malts and hints of chocolate and cocoa. Very nice. Finish is pretty bitter from the hops - just a touch too much for my taste. Also initially I got a strong metallic flavor that mostly wore off as the beer warmed. Also, on the finish and lingering on the palter these is some astringent bitter and boozy notes. Its just harsh on the finish.

Feel has a nice body to it. Medium carbonation. Beer is a bit harsh and rough around the edges. Lacks any smoothness.

Overall its a good beer. However, I think its just too rough around the edges and astringent. Could use a bit of smoothness for a porter.

Appearance: Pitch black with tan suds and a slight line of lace.

Aroma: Coffee, mocha, cocoa. Pretty spot-on to style and quite appealing.

Taste: Rich and hearty, smooth like a milk stout and flavored well with charry malts, burnt chocolate, coffee, and bittersweet cocoa. A solid and enjoyable stout for sure.
