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 lil’, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

jb (2539) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2014
On the patio during the latest monsoon. Beautiful dark with a nice tan head looks full and delicious. Nose is darkish chocolate and a bit sweet but restrained. Palate is roasted and very very sweet then ends with more roast and a coffee-ish dry finish. Tasty but might be better aged.

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Draft. Pours murky brown with just a touch of tan head. Aroma is boozy, barrel-y, and bold. Taste is the same. Just overwhelms the palate with the "hot" alcohol presence, woody tones from the barrel, and some milder chocolate and roasty notes. Not sure I could do more than a glass of this.
