Pours deep black with some ruby hues when held to the light. The head is near white, and lasts all the way to the last sip. The aroma is of milk chocolate, with some slight ash. Not much hop aroma, but that's expected. The taste is fantastic- perfectly balanced roasted malts up front with a nice, dry finish. What I love about this Porter is that it lacks that cloying, syrupy malt taste that many porters possess - this one is smooth and dry, and incredibly drinkable. Hands down, one of the best porters I've had at a brewpub ever.

Served on-tap at Willimantic Brewing Co. in a Willibrew pint glass.

A: Poured a very dark brown, nearly black color with a cola-like edge. Very thin veil of light brown foam leaves slight sudsy lace.

S: Smells sweet and chock full of bittersweet coffee and cocoa powder. A little hop spiciness is among the coffee filter smell.

T: Taste is very weak brewed coffee and deep roasted caramel malt. Can't quite put my finger on it, but this isn't a great tasting porter. Maybe the coffee flavor is a little too pronounced.

M: Mouthfeel is slick and a little oily, but lighter than what I'd expect a porter to be. Not rich and full, but sort of medium and undercarbonated.

D: A porter that you could session if you're really into coffeehouse-style porters. This one doesn't seem to be a particularly well-crafted or balanced one, but it's got a lot of that brewed coffee flavor. Not bad to try, but likely wouldn't get it again.

Off the tap this unfiltered porter was a dark brown color. The tan collar retained pretty well and left decent lacing. The aroma was of roasted malt, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. The flavors started with bittersweet chocolate and then went more dry with roasted malt, toasted malt and coffee. The mouthfeel was a little watery, the body was medium/full and the carbonation was medium/high. A good example of the style especially in the flavors but it could have used more weight and depth.
