bottle. Thick black with minimal head. The ABV comes across strong, but there’s plenty of flavor as well. Chocolate and licorice malts, bitter hops. Definite sipper.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours an extremely dark brown/black with a very dark brown head. Malty aroma with toasted/caramel notes. Deep, rich flavor with hints of coffee and mild sweetness. Very full body with minimal carbonation. Goes down a little thick, but without being too much so. An absolutely fantastic porter, one of the better beers I’ve had.

Taster at Beer for Geeks. It is an inky black pour and has a deep roasty plum chocolate aroma. Medium bodied, the taste is molasses, maple and chocolate syrup. Not so complex and maybe a bit too sweet but well done.

Pours pitch black. Nice head. Aroma: chocolate, sweet coffee, plums. Taste: raisins, chocolate and tons of coffee, with nice alcoholic warming in the palate. Very nice RIS, pretty sweet but it was not disturbing me.

On tap at WFDP ’2015. Black beer with almost brown head. Complex aromas of chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, dried plums etc. Very sweet, like chocolate liqueur. Smooth, creamy, full bodied beer. Very interesting, although a bit too sweet for me.

Paladar de dulçor médio, alcoólica, amargor discreto que intensifica no aftertaste. Corpo médio. Aftertaste intenso de café e álcool, toffe, doce de leite, chega a lembrar sabor defumado. Cerveja complexa e deliciosa!

Tallahassee, Fl - Quick Save - 12 oz bottle. Deep dark brownish-black pour, light, mocha colored head that clings to the edge of the glass. Prune-like fruitiness, a touch of chocolate, some dates and raisins in the aroma. Flavor is decadent with some chocolate goodness, some date-like fruity notes, some strong liqueur notes - cognac comes to mind. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent night cap.

I love porters. this is pretty good. it has a smooth start. the finish I am not sure about. it’s got a bit of alcohol sting.
