Pours black with little head. Nice malt aroma, nice porter taste and good balance. Not as much else there as I remembered.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Literally black, as usual, small stable lacy tanned head; leathery-fruity, not too toasty, nose with some herbal hops underneath; solid bitter-sweet flavour, soft and medium bodied; slightly lingering toasty-leathery finish, accompanied by a light acidity. Fine Porter.....

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Basically black with a thick tan head that lingers and leaves some amazing lacing. The aroma is mostly roasted coffee and a bit of caramel and plum. The flavor is also strongly coffee with nice bitter dark chocolate notes, just a little burnt. Very smooth and highly drinkable.

12oz bottle thanks to weihenweizen, pours black with a thin tan head, aroma is full of chocolate with a hint of coffee, the flavor has an awesome front end with coffee notes and finishes with dark chocolate, very flavorful all the way through, just a solid beer all the way around.

Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Coal black pour, thick mocha colored head, nce lacing. Fragrant aroma - plenty of dark chocolate, rich potting soil soil. Full-bodied flavor with lots of rich dark bakers chocolate, day old black coffee and some earthy black dirt. Mouthfeel is tick and chalky. Best porter I have had in ages.

pours nearly pitch black with little light showing through the sides of the glass. smallish beige head. aroma is toasted dark malts and chocolate. about as perfect as a porter can get without going crazy. deep dark chocolate and roasted malts show through well on the tongue. great lasting taste and semi dry and bitter finish.

Bottled sample. Unreal beer. Chocolate malt flavour. Great carbonation. Would like to get my hands on more.
