Big thanks go out to Westsidethreat for another great growler.
A - Pour produces a quarter inch of dense cocoa colored foam. Recedes in about thirty second, leaving a few floating bubbles and a thick ring around the edge. Body is pretty much black, only showing brown around the top edges when the light hits it. Leaves really nice sheets of lacing all over the glass.
S - Lots of roastiness comes right out. Molasses, espresso, and dark chocolate. Bitter, high cacao chocolate.
T - Taste follows through nicely with the aroma. Nice and roasty right up front with all sort of dark malts. Espresso comes in, slightly less roasty. Light anise flavor floats in. Towards the middle it really gets interesting. Leather and tobacco, with a increasing bitterness. Dark, bittersweet chocolate, with the bitterness holding on. Is there a touch of peat smoked malt in here? Roastiness comes back a bit combining with the bitterness that lasts all the way through long after the liquid has left my mouth. Lingers on the tongue for more than a full minute. Only the slightest traces of alcohol.
M - Super smooth, which makes this all too drinkable. Carbonation is light, which is working well here.
Overall - Yet another great beer from Port Brewing. I would say this might be the best stout I have had from them, which is saying something. Don't pass this one up if you get the chance.
