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

Pours dark but really brown, delicate head, not too much of it. Looks somewhat hazy - although its dark so even if it was translucent, I wouldn’t see through. I was trying to pair it with a steak, so probably should have read about this chocolate thing before. Aroma was sweetish, loads of vanilla and a bit of milk chocolate together with ginger bread. Taste was more of the same, vanilla, ginger bread and spicy milk chocolate. Smoke as well, and I liked that part. Just a hint of roast malts, sweet and velvety mouthfeel. Overall, I guess would be nice next to a campfire, a bit too much of vanilla for me. Don’t really know what Graham Crackers are, but based on this beer can guess that they are not bad :D

12 oz. can. Black pour, with a medium, frothy, light brown head. The nose is molasses, dark chocolate, chicory, and some light peat. Sweet and very malty, with a light bitterness that balances quite nicely. Medium to heavy body, chalky, syrupy, and thick. This is a fun, well-made, and tasty porter.

CObiased (333) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Can - pours a rich dark chocolate brown with some small chunky particulates and a very thin tan head. Enticing aroma of chocolate, cinnamon/spice, caramel and a whiff of coffee. This semi sweet ale has a thinner than expected body. Flavors that come through are cocoa, coffee, nutmeg, toffee and snickerdoodle. A good beer for dark beer newbies to try.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Can into a goblet. Deep opaque brown pour with a slight tan head. Aroma is, well, graham cracker. Vanilla, spice, roasted biscuit. Taste is roasted malts, hints of coffee, bittersweet chocolate, like cinnamon spice. Chewy. Sweet. Nice and warming, but could never do more than 1 in a sitting.

willisread (2543) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 26, 2015
Can from Tanakaya. Drank straight from the can. Good chocolate aromas with some light roasted malt, cinnamon and graham crackers. Taste is quite similar with less of the graham crackers and more of the roasted malt and chocolate. Fairly light bodied and well-balanced albeit a tad sweet. Nice enjoyable porter.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2015
Can from Antenna America. This is a GABF Bronze Medal Winner in the 2011 Specialty Beer Category. Pouring pitch black into my pint glass with a tan head, it’s a good looking beer. The aroma is a luscious chocolate with light graham biscuit notes. Fairly light bodied, the taste is sweet vanilla, bitter chocolate syrup and mild graham. If you’re looking for a sweet Porter this’ll fit the bill nicely.

commonmac (1061) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2015
On tap at Union Station in Denver. Really cool communal space. Consumed with willyP and wanderkate. Dark black with minimal head. Off white in color. Little bit of graham cracker on the nose and roasted malts. Maybe some marshmallow sugary notes. Taste has some sweetness but the flavor is definitely more mild than I would like. If you’re going for a graham cracker, I want you to really go for it. Some mild chocolate bitterness at the end. Overall it’s approachable but not very memorable.

nearbeer (4921) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2015
12 oz. can. Pours opaque brown-black with a disappearing foam above. Nose is roasted grain, wheat and vanilla. Taste is coffee, berry, dusty grain and vanilla. A light touch of herby hop on the finish. Near-medium body is a little to the sweet side but overall balanced in a drinkable way. Low carbonation level is nice.

Aroma - cocoa and and vanilla, but not getting much nose off of this beer Appearance - dark mahogany/brown with nice brown head Taste - initial bitterness, balanced by sweetness and light bitterness at the end Mouthfeel - light/medium bodied. Very carbonated and sticky Overall - it's decent. Not sure I follow the Graham Cracker claim. Tastes a lot more like what I'd expect out of a vanilla porter, which isn't a bad thing.
