Bottle 12 oz. Pours a dark and deep brown with a light brown head. Nose is chocolate and nutty. Flavor is explosive with creamy chocolate goodness, with a alchol finish that is semi-dry. The beer is full of flavor and very well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 9.2%abv, 85 IBU’s. Pours black with small light brown head. Wonderful complex aroma. Chocolate and nuts and other treats. Smooth mouthfeel, then the gives way to a surprisingly un-sweet bitter dark chocolate taste. Finishes balanced enough considering the 85 IBU’s. Not overly hopped, but 355ml’s is enough for me!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall, this was a very good beer – aromatic, tasty, good body. Pours with a deep black color, producing a dense and well retained tan head. Lacing was tight and sticky. The nose is roasted malts, coffee, some hops and a hint of alcohol: simply wonderful. The taste is predominantly bitter and lacks a balance that I’ve found in many porters: burnt malts, coffee and a distinct alcohol bite. Very nice, but would be better if the alcohol taste was tamed a bit.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark brown oily head atop an abyss of inky darkness. You can almost smell tomorrow’s hangover, but the chocolate malts overpower that. Full bodied and very malty, yet not sweet. Nice crisp finish leads to a roasty aftertaste.
And, damn...that is a great label. And the cause is good too ^.^
