Poured dark braown with a thin tan head that left ok lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate with a touch of hops. Wonderful flavors that mirrored the smell, with an underlying toaste biscuit flavor and perfectly balanced hops bitterness. Burnt sugar and a wisp of alcohol in the aftertaste. Medium body, good carbonation and a smooth, rich mouthfeel. This is one of my favorite porters.
