Had this at a share. A black oil like pour. Cocoa mainly on the nose. On the palate, there is roasted malt, cocoa, and just a hint of dark fruit. Glad I had the chance to try this.

Dark, roasty malt with toast, burnt caramel coffee, and char. Long and smooth finish. A bare hint of hops with a bit of crispness. A great porter, amazing for a can.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can... Black pour with a mid-sized, creamy, lightly tan head. Good retention. The bouquet is a luxuriant, malty swirl of brownie crusts, toasted almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Medium-bodied and oily with tickling carbonation. The hearty flavor is a marriage of roasty espresso and dark chocolate mocha. Robust, burnt, unsweetened-cocoa aftertaste. Can courtesy of ctipping!

Can courtesy of DandyWolfFloyd, thanks man! Dark brown almost black pour with a light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is coffee and cocoa with a nice malt backbone. Fairly light almost thin body but the flavor is all there. Very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Klobys. Pours very dark opaque brown with a creamy light brown head. Tastes like very roasted, very burnt coffee beans and toast. Bitter with a dry feel. Lightly earthy. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells earthy and like booze and roasted grains.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a can into a pint glass. Pours a ridiculously dark black! Coffee aroma all the way. Mouthfeel is heavy but not sticky. Taste is raisin, coffee, dark malt, some chalk and wood. A little too heavy for a porter but very good. I like the fact that it has a ton of flavor but not too much alcohol. I’d buy it again sometime.
