3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Porch Nite with Raith, Brisbane, and Cattleman. Pours a thick creamy dark brown. Thin tan head. Aroma is lots of chocolate, oak, lots of vanilla, and sweet malt. Flavor is very chocolaty, oaky and lots of vanilla. Very creamy smooth mouthfeel. Slightly under carbonated. Vanilla was a bit too pronounced. But overall, a very nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Moderate head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and vanilla. Thin-bodied. Low carbonation. Flavor of sweet milk chocolate and vanilla with little to no oak or bourbon. A bit one dimensional but that one dimension is pretty damn awesome. Just some great chocolate in this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is soft with mocha, chocolates and bourbon. The taste, like the aroma, features abundant mocha, with multi-layered vanilla and cocoa. Whiskey in the taste was very slight. The palate is full and unbelievably smooth with light carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and sweet. Overall: Decent porter--me likey.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours near black in color with a tan head. Notes of chocolate, vanilla and oak in aroma. Simple, but really nice, well simple is perhaps not the right word, but anyway really nice with all that chocolate and bit of espresso on the nose here all the time. Same in taste, lots of both chocolate and vanilla is present here as well. A bit on the sweeter side with some notes of dark fruityness coming through later on. A very chocolatey porter indeed with a oak and bit of spicy notes appearing in the end.

Aromas of dark milk chocolate, some cherry, subtle booze, subtle wood spice. Almost black in appearance with dark bronze highlights, and a mostly lasting dark tan head. Some malt sweetness, chocolatey, somewhat fruity. Full bodied, very smooth, dangerously drinkable.
