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

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 Tap @ brewery. Dark brown appearance with a creamy, tan head. Cocoa, light espresso, wood, a touch of smoke, and chocolate-caramel maltiness. Sweet vanilla, cocoa, dark chocolate, light smoke, roasty malty flavor. Vanilla is pretty potent on the finish. Nice brew. Second time around and I’m more impressed this time. Excellent, dessert-like session brew.

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.

3fourths (8344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 draft. cola brown with a small tan head. mildly toast roast and dark caramel malt, a tad rough, husky and unrefined, with a starchy and dry oatmeal / graham cracker quality. carbonation is a bit fizzy and malt is a tad too rough, but otherwise it comes across as toasty, nutty and spiced, leaning to the sweet side.

arminjewell (7039) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2012
On tap at Freshcraft in Denver, pour is dark brownish black with off white almost tan head, aroma brings notes of big cookie, graham, vanilla, and milk chocolate notes, hints of bitter roast and earthy notes as well. Taste is bordering on artificial, but a sweet graham and cookie like malt up front leads into some vanilla and caramel notes, touch of roasted chocolate, finishes fairly sweet. Well made, but a bit too sweet.

Ernest (6488) - 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...it’s not much fun to drink.
