22 oz bottle. Pours near black with a thin beige head. The aroma was roaster malts, chocolate and cocoa powder, earthy with some black coffee. The flavor is deep roasted malt, creamy chocolate, black coffee with some earthy hops and moderate bitterness to the finish. Nice easy drinking porter.

In the can it had a tinny and smokey taste that a lot of Porters are incorporating lately. Wasn't blown away and found it very one dimensional

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz cqn from Spirits Stafford. Poured with a HUGE beige head, basically an 80/20 head body split. Aroma has a lot of dusty/chalky notes trhoughout, ncie chocolate, slight dark fruit and black cherry, mdeicinal hint also. Flavor is roasty, burnt toast, touch of coffee grounds, lots of chocolate. Body is medium with stronger carbonation. Never had this before but something just seems a little off with this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Rich black body, velvety tan head piles up nicely on top, settles slowly, & leaves nice sheets of lacing against the glass. Robust aroma of rich chocolate fudge, lightly sweet with a bit of roasty bitterness. Hints of Italian roast espresso, light molasses, slight char, roast, faint brown sugar, & a little bit of nestled cream in there. Again, flavor shows more robustness than 5.5% ABV would have you think. Notes of bittersweet chocolate morsels, coffee, woodsy roast, faint ashy & charred tones, a bit of molasses, & perhaps the lightest hand of anise. Dark, bitter chocolate & roasted malt finish. Mouth feel thicker than a porter, but not up to stout levels. The description is fairly accurate, this is very much a "porter-stout", & a pretty tasty one at that.

12 oz can despite the description. A very nice chocolate porter! Opaque pour w/ a big foamy mocha head that leaves a little lacing. The aroma is chocolate, toffee, & a light roast. The taste is a nice balance between the chocolate & roasted notes. Not as bitter as most porters but this is quite tasty! I can certainly see this as a stout hybrid.
