574deadzone (1220) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle, listed 7% ABV. Pours a deep dark brown to black. A vigorous swirl of the glass produces a finger or so of a tight-bubbled mocha head that settles slowly to a ring. Nose involves a large amount of dark chocolate with some brown sugar, toasted malt notes, and touches of dark fruit. Taste is nice and sweet with some balancing bitterness, but not a whole lot. Fuller bodied, creamy, softer carb, with a nice chocolaty finish. Good solid porter, nice flavor and aromatics, with hearty body and strength. Another awesome dark beer from Dark Horse.

leghorn99 (124) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 16, 2015
Versa nel bicchiere di un bel marrone scuro, profondo; la schiuma è presente, di un bel colore crema, che lascia un leggero velo a copertura. L’aroma è molto ricco di malti tostati, cioccolato e chicchi di caffè; un sacco di caramello, con una dolcezza zuccherina mite. Al palato ritroviamo le percezioni olfattive, caramello scuro, zuccheri, tostatura, cioccolato e caffè, con aggiunta di leggere note di nocciola, e una finitura luppolata. Il corpo risulta medio, bassa invece la carbonazione.
