Acquired via trade from bboven, so a big "Thank you" goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is coffee, toasted oats, dark chocolate and dark malts with a slight touch of hops.

T: The taste is creamy, malty and a little smoky, with flavors of oats, roasted coffee and dark chocolate. There's a mild hops presence that brings in a little bit of balance. The after-taste is bready and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium-to-heavy body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, slightly filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a nice porter to drink a few of, but it doesn't seem like a beer that would really want to drink much more than 2 or 3 of due to its heaviness.
