Pours black with low frothy tan head. Aroma of muscovado, figs, dates, light caramel, chocolate, hints of oak barrel. Taste is initial chocolate and muscovado sweet followed by boozy port barrel that lasts through to the finish. Towards the sweet side with the alcohol very clearly present. Body is full and creamy with soft carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was the 2011 batch. Complex beer. Strong roasted malt, chocolate and coffee aroma. Great dark and oily appearance with a brown head that dissipated quickly. Nice coating palate that had weight but not too syrupy. A whole bust of flavors hits with dark malts, espresso, dark chocolate and toffee. Maybe some smoke or tobacco? A little boozy. This aged well and will always please.

Clean malty-milk-chocolatey aroma, like whoppers. Deep brown-amber color with a well-formed tan head. Whopper-like milk-chocolatey taste, rich and sweet, with a bitter-chocolate finish. Its a good beer, i just dont care for the flavor profile.

Bottle thanks to a trade. Pours near black with a coffee brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a lot of dark grains with a bit of chocolate that adds a touch of sweetness and light roasted malts. Flavor is richer with roasted malts and bitter chocolate backed by dark grains
