UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Bomber, poured into a pint glass. Black with a medium mocha head and great lasting lacing. Aroma is dominated by coffee and chocolate, licorice and nuts, with some burned notes from the roasted malts. Has a nice finish to it. Great Cigar Beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured with a large, frothy, long lasting, brown head that settles very slowly, some lace, and an opaque black brown color. Aroma is fairly basic - roast, cocoa, coffee, dark malt. Flavor’s like nose, but malt comes out more with carbonic tang in the front with a very smooth palate to make this such an easy drinking beer. Just a few off notes in the finish. But what the hell. Good schtuff Maynard.

I enjoyed the chocolate flavor and thicker mouthfeel of this porter. Not quite as creamy as a stout but not as thin as a porter. Slightly nutty and maybe a little coffee as well. Dark roasted malt but not burnt.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Arôme suave de torréfaction chaude, chocolat et de pain grillé, brulé. En bouche c’est adéquatement moelleux pour la grosseur, moyenne décadence et belle finale sèche abrupte et amère.
