QT sized bottle...
A: A deep dark brown with red highlights around the edges. An aggressive pour yields a huge 2+ inch tan colored head that fades at a decent pace. Very good.
S: I get some roastiness immediately upfront quickly followed by a smoked malt scent. Mild coffee and vanilla hidden on the back. Decent.
T: A heavy roasty smoke upfront with a strong vanilla quickly following. It opens up at the end to a lingering mild coffee roast with hints of chocolate. Seems like a good deal of smoked and roasted malts were used in here. Decent.
M: Medium body with a good carbonation. A creamy finish. Good.
O: All in all, this is a good beer. I've used smoked malt in brews before , but never to this degree. Surprisingly, it blends well with the roastiness to create a smoked beer that does not taste like smoked meat. Good to try if you like smoked porters.

Served in a shaker pint, beer is dark brown to black, hazy with a thin off white head of small bubbles, some lacing but low carbonation.
Aroma is mostly yeasty, nice Belgian yeast bouquet, I like the aroma.
The beer is thinner than expected but still good, mildly sweet on the leadoff, nice body throughout and a good finish overall. The beer is not dry, mildly bitter, a little roast on the back end. I enjoyed it, I think the taste was the best part about it and that's what you are shooting for. I'd have it again.

A- Looks like your standard porter with no clarity and a black body topped with an off white thin layer of head. Great lacing throughout and that thin layer of head remains.
S- Nothing overly strong here, just light hints of coffee and a bit of alcohol which is surprising with the ABV listed, still feels like a pretty average porter.
T- The beer shines when it finally reaches the mouth. Strong tastes of roasted barley coffee like flavor is well balanced with a light bitter roastiness and a subtle but perceivable and highly enjoyable fruitiness on the back end. Not the best porter I have had but certainly quite good.
M- Super creamy and lush but not so chewy as to be a stout. This one really hit the style dead on and exceeded my expectation in this category, would not change a thing.
D- This was a good beer, while not the best I have had, and probably not the best I've even tasted from Franklin's, it was quite enjoyable and I would gladly ask for another.
