bottle. dark with a thin tan head... i was expecting a little more. a little bit of a watery moutful. grapes/wine notes mixed into the smokey aroma... flavors a little bland... decent, but not my favorite that i’ve tried in this style

Almost black cola colored beer wit a small head. Aroma is sweet dark malts, smokey, some rye bread and sweet ripe plums. Taste is on the sweet side with coffee, dark malts, ripe fruitiness. Smooth mouthfeel and bitter smooth finish. Lacks the final touch, yet a very enjoyable beer.

freakin' tasty sweet chocolatey smooth goodness that leaves a nice lingering presence in the mouth that keeps begging you to take another sip ASAP. too bad it costs 5 freakin' bucks for a 16oz bottle.

I drank a really fresh one yesterday (2013) so I have something to compare with when I drink the aged bottles.
Dark brown color. Off-white medium head with big bubbles.
Aroma of coffee. cocoa.. no complexity. Taste is sweet and just a little bit bitter. Body is pretty thin and it’s heavily carbonated.

Aroma and flavor of raisins and coffee, which is overpowered by sweetness. Lacks body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark syrupy brown color with small but lacy beige head. Aroma is roasty malty, not hoppy at all and a bit alcoholic. Flavor is roasty malty and slightly chocolatey with kind of bitter finish. Overall quite mild, though. Palate is medium-bodied, oily and very low carbonated. Pleasant Porter but is missing some character.
