COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices. A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate diving into a semi-dry finish of roasted malt and biscuit. 5.6% ABV

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2014
This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium foamy tan head that recedes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and vanilla. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, graham crackers and chocolate. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt and graham cracker aftertaste. Decent overall.

ajnepple (2509) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2014
On tap at Coloradoís Best Beers in Conifer. Black appearance with a light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, light toffee, caramel malts, light earth and light roasted coffee notes. Similar flavor, adding medium sweetness and minimal bitterness. Light to medium body with a smooth, creamy feel, a little thin. Pretty tasty overall.

DiarmaidBHK (3524) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
can from Hazelís beverage world. Pours coca-cola brown with a thin brown head. Leaves a lot of lacing. has a bit of malt on the nose. Lots of nuttiness on the tongue which is an interesting twist on the porter. finishes clean. Not bad.

"There sure seamed to be a plethora of quality flavored porters on this trip and this one qualifies. Actually went there for this beer. Solid feel - not thin, fairly robust for the abv. Flavor and aroma very pleasant chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, dark fruits and a wisp of smoke. Well done."

That1Guy (1962) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Picked up a 12 oz can of this one. Sweet. Opaque brown/black with a tan head and decent lacing. Definite chocolate and vanilla on the nose, with a bit of roast and coffee. Light bodied, maybe a bit undercarbonated. Flavor is more chocolate and vanilla. No off-flavors to speak of, just pretty bland overall.

Can. Aroma is roasty, vanilla, no graham cracker... Taste is dry, bitter, smooth, medium carbonation. Overall, itís nothing impressive.

Draft. Recommended by a local I met at another brewery, this was indeed a great beer. Black of course, and the graham aroma brought me back to my youth. The flavor is quite mocha-like. Sweet, an utterly rich dessert beer, exceptional in the narrow category. (#5640, 8/24/2014)

Black beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, light smoke, vanilla, and chocolate. Taste is sweet with chocolate, light smoke, vanilla, caramel, and prune. However also quite bitter. (Houston 201408)

Ernest (6341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate syrup, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Simple and generic...vanilla-choco-roast, which almost every porter/stout has at a bare minimum...would love to find the advertised smoked cedar and maybe a touch of the mulling spices, but nope...just the usual suspects in this one. Pretty much the definition of average. Needs more finishing bitterness and a less syrupy body...itís not much fun to drink.
