Bottle 12fl oz (Biercraft)
Opaque black color, small brownish head. Heavy sweet and somewhat toasted aroma. Full-bodied. Very sweet, almost honeyish flavor. Covers alcohol quite a bit. Calvados, some roasty bitterness in the aftertaste. Way too sweet for my liking although quite complex.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, at home. Aroma: Sugar cone; vanilla extract; chocolate fudge; light bourbon-like impressions. Appearance: Inky black pour with a mocha cap that fades into a ring. Flavor: Understated fudge and sugar cone up front, and then sugars, sugars, sugars with vanilla extract accompaniment, leading to a lingering vanilla finish. Not terribly boozy for itís strength. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: The kind of really sweet, dessert-like beer that I get in the mood for now and then. If I had another bottle, Iíd probably make a beer float with some vanilla bean ice cream, or go full Kentucky and have it with Transparent Pie.

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 Iíve had.
