Poured into a Duvel globe.

A- Black, with a mocha color head that holds nicely. Strong lacing.

S- Chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, milk chocolate and slight vanilla.

T- Lots of roast and chocolate. Slightly bitter crisp finish. Dark chocolate up front followed milk chocolate and roasted malts. Semisweet bakers coco finish. Wow this is good.

M- Perfect. Medium carbonation, thick body, viscus, no sign of ABV, dry finish and refreshing.

O- What a great porter. This might be the first dark non-Belgian style beer that I've tried from Russian River and it's spot on. But what do you suspect from a world class brewery.

As a sampler from the source, pours dark brown, opaque, with a half finger super creamy looking khaki head. Roasty with a big part chocolate covered raisins on the aroma. The flavor is full of big chocolate notes, has some dark fruit finish, and just a hint of roast or smoke on the palate. Medium creamy mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation that drinks easy for the ABV. Not bad at all, but probably not worth going out of your way for.
