Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lilí, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

furthur (546) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 11, 2015
12 oz. bottle, opaque black, mahogany head fades. Aroma raisin and molasses, metal, cherry, soy. Taste is maraschino cherries, dried plums, molasses, coffee, spice, tobacco, roasted barley. Palate is rich, not syrup, carbonation moderate. This is sweet, but roasty with a bitter finish, and the transition is very nice, layered and changing. Best thing Iíve had in days. It is a tad hot. Time in the cellar might turn this into something amazing.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle: Pitch black pour with a smooth, burnt tan head that lathers up nicely & perches itself up top for a while. Big aroma of chocolate candies, burnt brown sugar, molasses, cookie dough, black cherries, hints of coffee, roasted malt, raisins, mild sweet cream, sticky caramel, & a touch of alcohol. Wow, lots going on. Flavor is very sweet up front. Huge residual brown sugar, toffee, caramel, & chocolate bursting at the seams. Underlying notes of roast, soy sauce, prunes, licorice, & mild ash lead into a chocolate brownie & molasses finish, stroked with a large ping of alcohol heat. Creamy body. A big beer, an intense beer. Perhaps just a touch on the overly sweet side at times, but otherwise this is pretty good.

Pours a medium brown frothy head atop an opaque black body. Nose of soya sauce and molasses. Very roasty - even burnt - malt backing with a molasses and cocoa front. Somewhat dry. Interesting. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights.

jercraigs (9070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
2014-04-19. Black body with a modest tan head. 3++ Aroma is sort of interesting, I canít quite put my finger on what is going on here. There is a not quite dusty quality to the malt, and a vaguely fruity character but fruity is the wrong word. Flavour is similarly interesting with soft subtle not quite dusty sweet malt. Whispers of fruity chocolate, dark malt core. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Rich, lovely stuff. On tap at Torst, Brooklyn.
