Stouts and Porters II. Thanks to Bruce for this whale. Opaque dark brown beer, short lived tan head. Palate is slightly viscous and smooth with fine minerally carbonation. Rich dark chocolate and a little aniseed. Super light coffee, but this beer really is about the dark chocolate. Finishes smooth. Pretty good, light on it’s toes.

Black color. Impressive aroma, with chocolate, Bourbon vanilla, cookies, roasted malt. Strong body, the mouthfeel is quite oily; strong chocolate flavor, sweet, with light vanilla and evident roasted malts too; the final actually has more roasted malts, which I don’t like too much. Strong bitterness. An excellent beer anyway, well balanced.
