COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hohops (635) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Appearance is black as a moonless night, a one finger dark beige head which doesn’t last long. Aroma- very chocolatey, caramel, treacle, vanilla ice cream, a bit boozy, fruitcake, fudge, milky coffee, sweet, dark fruit. Taste- nice and thick, bitter chocolate milkshake, coffee bitterness, dark chocolate, vanilla hints, slightly vinous, dark cherries, a bit oily towards the end, the right amount of carbonation to clean things up, some alcohol in there but hard to detect. Quite a sweet finish, with burnt treacle and molasses. Luxurious.

chucklemation (1038) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is lots of roast and some dark chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts and sweet chocolate. Has a full body and goes down smooth. The whole time I was drinking this I couldn’t help but think it’s more an imperial stout than a porter, but that doesn’t really matter when it tastes this good.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
On tap @ 10 East - There is nothing "lil" about this huge monster of a beer. It slaps you upside your head it’s so amazing. Waves of flavor and aroma attack your senses in the most pleasing way. My only nitpick with this is...impy porter...impy stout? There’s no way I could tell which it was if tasting this blind. A little sludgy and it’s absolutely wonderful because of it.

shrubber85 (9628) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle. Sour milk, quinine, and chocolate malt aroma. Black with small head. Very sweet chocolate syrup and light malt/hay flavor. Cloyingly sweet chocolate flavor without much else.
