This has a very distinct smell, like licorice or something else I canít quite name. The taste is interesting, I get the malt flavor as well as a sour note like black licorice, as well as other flavors I canít quite pinpoint. It does seem a bit thick on the palate, but enjoyable when sipped.

Bottle. Pours almost opaque amber, appears black in the glass. Light tan head, dissipates to the edges, which stick around. Smells like the sweeter end of the porter spectrum. Taste is sharp but not bitter, simple and to the point. Smoother than I expected. Nice sipping porter.

16.9 bottle shared poured a medium brown yet translucent with light brown head. The aroma is roasted malts and chocolate and coffee and licorice. Not necessarily in that order. The flavor is quite delicious. Itís sweet without over doing it. Roasted malts, lots of black licorice and chocolate. Blended together very well. Overall impressed with this porter. Donít let looks deceive you.

Pours dark brown, almost black. Thick, foamy, tan head that stays forever. Copious lacing. Nose is dark chocolate malt.Taste is nicely bitter chocolaty roast with rich, voluptuous sweetness underneath. Full body, lively carbonation, cocoa finish. This bottle must have aged nicely in transport. Delicious!
