22 oz bottle . Dark brown with a rocky tan head . Nice chocolate smell with roasted malts and nuts. Full bodied with a smooth, oily texture. The taste follows the nose with rich roasted grains and a chocolate malt sweetness. A very good porter here. 06/12/2007

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2010 Bottle. Rich dark brown, almost opaque but not totally, with tan head and nice layer of foam and lace. Nose is light and clean and so are the flavors, which include mainly coffee. Decent mouthfeel and quaffable if not exciting....Re-Rate from bottle--Rich dark opaque brown with tan head. Aromas of carob, cocoa, chocolate liqueur, and Nutella. Very soft velvet palate. Sweet entry, then the middle is rich lively and fresh chocolate malts. Grows more complex with each sip. Highly drinkable.
