Thanks to Richlikebeer care of Trip for bringing this to the January gathering. Poured black with a light tan head. Aroma of chocolate and piney hops. Flavor is a strong mix of dark semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, and a touch of hops. The chocolate worked very well for me in this, but then again I don’t mind my dark beers a little sweet.

Thanks to Trip for providing and Richlikebeer for sharing this growler. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Roasted malt aroma with lots of chocolate and some coffee. Sweet chocolatey flavor with some bitter roasted malt and coffee to help try and balance the sweetness. Smooth and easy drinking porter that would have been even better if it was a bit less sweet.

Many thanks to Trip for setting me up with a grolwer of this to. pour was a deep brown, but a little thin on the head, aromas of a bit of caramel, behind a huge burst of sweet chocolate. Flavors were very much chocolatey, with hints of coffee and a little bit of a cola or rootbeer flavor at the very end. body is a little more thin than i generally like, but that actually made for a more easy to drink beer, since a thicker body with this much sweetness might have been a bit harder to take. a very nice brew that with a bit more body could be in my upper tier of porters. as it was, it was still damn good. Thanks again Trip.

Draft poured with semi deep amber/black color. Slight chocolate, prune, and blackberry tastes. Good head, and a smooth finish. Above average.

Draft poured with nice off-white head. Hint of chocolate in the arome and taste. Good drinking and tasting porter. I’ll agree with Volgon, this beer needs more "backbone".
