On cask at Victory brewpub on 9/21/08.

A - Deep brown with burgundy highlights and one-and-a-half finger creamy alabaster head that transformed into a patchy film and left some sparse lacing.

S - Prevalent coffee aroma with hints of dark chocolate, roasted malt and mild alcohol. Some dark fruit is also in the mix.

T - Bold coffee notes and, to a lesser degree, chocolate. Malt is big on roasted flavor with some graininess and bread. Hops emerge in the backend with a leafy, earthy tinge. Finishs with roastd malt and some chocolate sweetness.

M - Medium body that's a little thin and watery overall. Finish imparts a bit of earthy bitterness on the palate.

D - Solid cask porter with lots of flavor. A little thin in the mouthfeel, but very flavorful and drinkable overall.
