Bottle. Heavy molasses and roasted for the malt, light perfume for the hops, dough for the yeast, with hints of brown sugar and cola. Head is small and quickly diminishes to nothing. Color is clear dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium, syrupy, with a lively carbonation. An okay Porter, a little out of balance in flavor but it does have a nice smokiness to it.

Dark with a tannish head. Smooth, roasty malt with some coffee and toast. Smooth, full, earthy with a long finish. Not bad at all.

Bottle @ European Taste. Dark brown with tan had that dissipated and light lacing. Smells sweet and chocolatey with some liqeuer, molasses, and coffee. And a little damp earthy and vegetal. Sweet but not cloying. Fairly dry/clean finish.

Bottle at movie Gone Girl. Not great- licorice and sweet notes overpowering. Tons of toasted malt on the nose and cola. Medium mouthfeel. More of a winter beer. Sweetness and lack of balance kind of ruined it for me. Only mildly carbonated. Right look and mouthfeel- wrong taste.

A porter that will put hair on your chest. Slightly but not very boozy. Strong porter notes. Thinner than a stout; well labeled.
