The tasting notes on this one are spot on. It definitely has the big malty flavor and the bit of astringency on the finish. It's color is a very dark brown which can just barely be seen through when light is shown through.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a dimpled mug. A pretty fancy presentation for a humble porter!

Appearance: rich brown hue with no haze. Head is a nice layer of creamy tan foam.

Smell: very rich aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel and coffee, roughly in that order of intensity. One of the most rich and complex aromas I've experienced in a porter.

Taste: roasty but smooth flavor, with more subtle hints of chocolate and toffee. Not quite as complex as the aroma, but I actually think it works very well. I'm a big fan of this.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a very nice creaminess.

Overall: I'm a porter fan, and this one really hits the spot. It has good complexity where it needs it, but remains highly drinkable. This is a great beer.
