Sampled in March 2016 from 22oz bottle in pint glass. Bottled on date of 10/2/2015 was on the bottle.

Appearance: Pitch black, dark color, with a thick dark tan head. The head lasted a long time, and left a nice lacing on the glass, but not a lot.

Smell: There are roasted malt aromas, along with some strong coffee and sweet caramel aromas. Some bitterness in the aroma. Nice combination and balance between the various flavors.

Taste: Full-bodied with great balance of malt and hops. There is a hint of sweetness and caramel flavors that may be due to the malts, but it is balanced nicely with pronounced coffee flavor, and a little bitterness from hops. Overall it has an excellent taste. The combination of strong hops and roasted malts and strong alcohol give this drink powerful flavors.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, but very smooth. Very creamy. Medium alcohol which matches with the 6.2% on the label.

Overall: Overall, this is a very good beer and one of the best porters I have tasted. This is the first beer I have tried from Berkshire Brewing Co. The more I drink it, the more I like it. I will definitely look for this and buy it again.

From the 650 ml. bottle with a smudged "Best By" date unfortunately. Sampled on January 30, 2016.

Dark brown pour with a decent sized long lasting tan, foamy head.

Excellent ground or roasted coffee aroma on the nose while any hop character is low profile. Modest sweetness in there too.

The body is almost medium but it is definitely smooth and creamy.

The taste brings out a full coffee character with a decent malt sweetness and little to no hop bitterness at the end. It is a decently done Porter.
