Thanks Dana for the bottle.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all around the glass.
The smell had a roasty robust black coffee with a sharp bitter hoppiness (slight earthy pine).
The taste was mainly sharp roasty robust toasty and dark coffee, light chocolate does enter in a bit at the end.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but nothing overbearing. It carried a nice sharp bitter roasty coffee rolling over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter that I would have again. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Had at Moons. Nice notes of burnt malt, roast and chocolate, but rich chocolate. Body was thin, but it was interesting. I enjoyed it.

Nice porters. I have been really getting into them lately and this one was balanced all around. Not too much of any ingredient. DocLock (10830) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Pours dark blackish with off-white head that stays around awhile. Nose has some roasted black patent and choc malts, cacao, walnut. Tastes of roasty dark malts, cacao, backup hops, and a fairly dense finish, although not up to an Impy Porter level in my estimation. Still, a very good porter.
