12oz bottle poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours an opaque dark black with a quarter finger of beige head that recedes fairly fast and leaves some light lacing. Not a ton of carbonation.

S- Light chocolate, some hops, light roasted malts, not overly aromatic.

T- Light bitter chocolate, some light hops, light roasted malts, not overly flavorful, finishes with light chocolate and hoppy presence.

M- Medium bodied, not a ton of carbonation, easy drinking. Decent feel, but could use a bit more carbonation.

O- I wasn't overly impressed by this beer. It was easily drinkable, but there definitely wasn't anything special about it and there are many other porters I'd rather drink. If you live next to the brewery I'd try it out, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to obtain it.

A bottle into a Weyerbacher tulip

X-Ray sports a very black shaded color with some dark brown spots towards the bottom of the glass when up to light. A nice creamy tan/brown head that looks like it's off of a nitro line, Great lacing.

Smell is pretty spectacular rich with dark bakers chocolate a nice whiff of roasted malt with a vanilla hit. I usually get a whole lot of tootsie roll from porters but this one is different.

And were off, 1st sips are nothing short of amazingly rich with the above already mentioned. Light chocolate mixed with roast and a small hint of vanilla and coffee. A nice amount of crystal malt used, that much is apparent.

The feel is so rich and creamy and smooth and refreshing, even though I don't find dark beers refreshing at all. This is approaching medium in build active bubbles and smooth baby.

great porter, one I would not mind having a six of during a Sunday. A little more in strength than the standard American porter, but the added flavor is notch. This is a nice offering and hopefully comes back around again in the future.
