Restrained aroma in a reddish-black pour. Huge malt body makes this an excellent contrast to the popular hop-bomb IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very dark red with tan head. Peach aromas, fruity. Even more fruity flavours, roasted coffee too, rather sweetish (heavy sweet), loads of caramel. Dense in that aspect. Oily, fairly long finish; peculiar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured can. Clear brown in the glass. Nicely formed head. Nose is milk chocolate. Palate is all about the roast. Sticky milk chocolate, caramel, some cream in there. Even and steady front to back. I would have enjoyed a little more bite, but decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Cigar City. Pours watery deep amber brown with thin creamy off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma is rich roasty malt, a hint of caramel. Blindfolded I’d call this a porter. Taste is roasty caramel malt, paired with a thin body, solid depth of roast throughout, lots of leather and oak in a relatively thin body. Does make me want a cigar as well, so it has that going for it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this one from a can. Very dark brown. Nose was sweet but taste is full of malt and caramel with bitter hops at the end. Finish was a little sweet for me. 5.5% alcohol. Did not have this with a cigar but should have.
