12 oz bottle into a Swamp Head snifter. Extra in a trade from beergod1 -- thanks, man!

Pours a nice beige, two finger-thick head. Carbonation continues to crawl up the side of the glass. Color is a dark, molasses brown.

Smells strongly chocolate with hints of coffee and roasted malts.

Taste presents a lot of dark chocolate and black, burnt coffee. Faint bitter hop character. Typical porter iron-like aftertaste, but much more subdued than most. Very pleasant.

Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Medium carbonation, light bodied.

Overall, a very enjoyable porter that I could drink several of. I won't be trading for it, but I'd love to get this as an extra again.
