A:
Pours a clearish, cola black with a half-inch tan head that quickly settles to a film. Okay retention; good, stringy lacing.

S:
Rich and earthy. Nuts, malt, licorice, coffee.

T:
Tastes rich and slightly creamy. Nutty and almost burnt with some dirty notes and rich, mouth-coating roasted malt flavors. Really nice!

M:
Medium body. Good crisp carbonation. Incredibly drinkable. Nice.

O:
A damn fine porter! It seems very "Porter-esque" to me. That is, it has all that I like in porters and nothing of what I don't. Rich and hearty. Warming and dank.
Would have again.
Worth trying.

A: Dark brown, relatively large head but quickly dissipates to a small ring.
S: Chocolate, dark breadcrust.
T: Full toffee, dark chocolate. Quite bitter.
M: Very smooth, full-bodied. Slight (acidic) astringency in the finish.
O: very nice beer, interesting complex flavours but very drinkable nonetheless.
