The pour was a muddy dark brown with a slight ruby hue and a large (2-3 finger) light brown frothy head that quickly diminished, down to a scattered film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was very mild with roasted dark malts, light resin hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of bitter chocolate, coffee and toffee.
The taste was lightly bitter sweet and quite malty with notes of bitter chocolate and toffee pretty much throughout, progressing into a roasty hoppy taste with a bold dark roasted coffee presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a lightly bitter espresso taste left lingering on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a thin dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a rather impressive tasting Porter, with a nice mild hoppy presence which was complimented nicely by the roasty mocha coffee taste...
