Pours opaque but some light gets through about 30% of the beer. Foam is half a glass, thick, and tan. Retention is average if not better with the foam becoming creamy. Lacing in nice.
Aroma is dominated by roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Not much else there for me outside of a slight caramel/sweet factor.
Taste was a bit sweet at first; much more so than the aroma would lead it to be. Sweet chocolate comes in the middle with roasted malt and bitter chocolate take over near the end. Slight coffee and maybe even smoke arrive late.
Creaminess in the mouth makes this beer feel big in the mouth. Carbonation is really weak but the beer is over a year old.
Not a bad porter. Good characteristics for the style and it held up to a year in the cellar. If they still make this I am up for another. Enjoy!
