Bloody good beer. Not everyone’s cup of tea (well beer, rather) and just one does the trick as it’s at a whopping 11.5%!!! A nice complex winter beer with massive flavour, like nothing you would get in a standard porter. Well done you crazy Danish/American bastards!!!

Draft as well as 12 oz bottle currently. Rating is a coronation of the both samples. Pitch black with tan head that doesn’t diminish. Aroma is lovely. Lots of roast, deep barley, chocolate and light vanilla.
Flavor of molasses, dark chocolate, coffee, brownie batter and burnt grain. The alcohol is noticeable in the bottle but was not at all during the draft sample. Most anything is better on draft. Lots of lingering roast with a dry texture. Secondary flavors of coca nibs and light bitter coffee to help cut the sweetness. Body is full and luscious. A sipper for sure but great flavor overall, I love this brew!
