3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew smells wonderful. Deep caramel caught me off guard. Big roasted notes with vanilla. Taste to me is a little tainted. There is a huge alcoholic bitterness in mid palate. The mouthfeel makes it dangerous. Very light and tight carbonation. This brew is worthy.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
For porters you don’t get much better than this. Nice roasted coffee aroma. Deep dark color with medium brown head. Nice mouthfeel of medium weight. Carbonation was just right. Great roasted malt flavor with coffee being more dominant than the vanilla. Well rounded with a mild hops bitterness. Greatness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Wow! Great draft 12 oz. Pour with thin head and good lacing. Smell of cocoa, coffee and vanilla. Smells of a chocolate factory. Tastes similar. Overwhelming taste of coffee and vanilla with an ultimate smoothness. It’s like when you would make chocolate milk with whole milk and Nesquick.

Bottle pours a dark black/brown with a medium tan head. Well rounded aroma of chocolate, vanilla, molasses, and coffee. Taste of tons of vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. Has a sharp bitterness in the middle maybe a mix from the alcohol and hops. Very nice!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours a dense black with a khaki colored head of foam. Aroma is heavy coffee with a smoky fruitiness to it. Taste is that coffee again. Maybe a little too much coffee. Thick, velvety mouthfeel.
