Pouring at the Michigan Brewers Festival during RBSG. Pours a deep black, still with no head. Fuesals and vegetables on the nose. Smooth and sweet, light vegetables. Roast and toast. Salty for some odd reason. Slow alcohol on the finish. Smoother than expected.

sample served out of a bottle at MSBF. limited availability from what i heard.... poured a muddled cola caramel brown pour without much of a head.... aroma lacked focus somewhat with some caramel and a touch of smoke. didn’t have many chocolate notes like a typical porter.... flavors improved on the aforementioned with sweet toffee and molasses with a little heat on the backend. boozy yet smooth going down considering the abv. i recall enjoying this more than what my scores represent.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2010
"hand" bottled and served at the Michigan Brewers Guild Winterfest 2010: Very small pours from the limited cellared bottling, had go back for a second and third try. Completely opaque with oily tears, pretty close to having no carbonation but in this case it really lets the flavor profile sit and be enjoyed. The aroma has notes of plum, raisins and fig (sort of Baltic like) along with walnuts, tobacco, oak, roast and char and some earthy elements. There is a very light vapour of butterscotch but it is hardly an issue. The taste starts very fruity and twangy with a malty and earthy background. Some salty and mineral water components found here and there along with an oaky finish. There is a constant Cavendish pipe tobacco and anise sub-tone throughout the tasting. The mouth feel is that of a liqueur, lush and oily, very full bodied for a "porter". This is simply outstanding, too bad it is made in such limited quantity.
