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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, thanks to nimbleprop. Dark brown color akin to used motor oil, topped with a thick brown head. Spotty bits of lacing throughout. Nose is heavy roast, dark chocolate, faint espresso, and very light hops. Transitions perfectly to the taste. Heavy roast and cocoa dominate, but still very drinkable. With the exception of being a tad light in the carbonation, it has all of what I like in a robust porter. Good stuff!
