12 oz bottle poured into a frosted pint glass. Very little aroma that I could descern, but then they were smoking in the Hair of the Dog. Chocolate and malt flavours with an excellent mouth.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Tasted from 12 oz brown bottle into a nonic pint glass. Thanks gregwilsonstl! It poured a clear, dark reddish brown colour with short-lived head of beige foam. Toasty, tart, medium-roast coffee acidity, nice cherry and plum notes, some spiciness from rye and possibly warm-fermented ale yeast phenols. Light body, medium carbonation. Thinner mouthfeel and drier finish than many classic porters, but also crisper and more refreshing. Elevated alcohol too, but it was completely invisible. Like a tastier, more complex AmberBock. I liked it a lot and look forward to getting some more next time I pass through Nash-Vegas.
