"A-pours a jet black liquid with a creamy light brown colored head. S-hints of chocolate with lots of burnt ashy aromas, notes of burnt coffee, light plum malty sweetness in the back. T-the taste has hints of chocolate with more of the ashy burnt aromas, malty sweetness with a light hop presence bringing some floral flavors and a hint of bitterness. M-extremely smooth and creamy, medium body, actually slightly thin in the back with a light carbonation and bitter finish. D-this is ok, taste is better than the nose, the flavors have a much less burnt components and ash than the nose. plain but not bad."

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Bottle courtesy of OrlGamecock, thanks. Nice dark black pour with a decent tan head. Rich and fullbodied, very robust, chocolate and roasty. Nicely balanced brew, enjoyed it and will have to find again.

Nice beer, really big on the chocolate which was all over the nose, and also in the flavor but there complemented with a light roastiness. Malts are smooth and rounded, not too sweet, with actually a semi-dry chocolate finish.

Bomber thanks to beermeX2 on BA. Pours black in color with a nicely formed lacey tan head that lasts. Great roasty and chocolatey aroma with hints of dark chocolate. The flavor is also excellent. Better than some vintages of Sexual Chocolate even. Roast, chocolate, dark chocolate, and even some molasses and anise. Medium-full bodied with a smooth silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Really excellent overall. Better than I expected.

Pour thanks to daknole. Brown with a khaki head. Aromas of campfire smoke, chocolate, coffee. Flavor shows the same and is reinforced with some nice roasted malt notes. Overall body is moderate to full, moderately sweet and finishes with a light roasted bitterness.

22 oz. bottle purchased from Foothills. Dark black pour with a healthy tan head. Aroma of smoky malts, roasted espresso, walnuts, and hints of dark fruit. Huge dark coffee flavors jump out with noticeable smoke and bitter chocolate. The finish is lingering but there is little, if any, detectable alcohol warmth. This is really quite fantastic.

Bottle picked up at the brewpub. Strong cocoa in the nose with cream, woody/smoke notes, and toffee. A dark fruit presence sneaks in after the fact. Pours dark; looks black with some amber coming through, and a thick fluffy head. This is a very smooth drinking Porter, creamy, but also assertive. Chocolate is very prominent in the flavor which isnít surprising following the aroma. Dark fruit mixes in with roasty coffee, light bitterness, and some char in the finish. Porters typically arenít one of my favorite styles but this is good stuff. Probably one of the best Porters Iíve had.
