A: Pours a dark brown with just a touch of highlights when held to light.  The tasting room was pretty dark, so it may have actually been a bit lighter than it appeared.  A modest light tan head sat on top briefly and then settled to a thin film and ring.  Minimal lacing. 

S: Nice amount of roasted barley, some chocolate, coffee, caramel malt, and a touch of earth in the background.  Really good smelling that suggests a good bit of complexity for the style.  

T: Follows the aroma quite well.  Roasted barley and coffee up front with the chocolate and caramel maltiness in the background.  The earthiness that I smelled doesn't really show up in the taste.  

M: Medium bodied with a good bit of carbonation.  Smooth and creamy on the palate.  Just a touch of a drying effect after each sip. 

D: Really tasty porter and very easy to drink.  I had to go back for a second after the tour.
