Can from secret santa. Awesome. Nose is big and roasty with hints of bittersweet dark chocolate and very faint coconut. Dark brown/black pour, big tan head that settles but has staying power. The flavor is mostly roasty and one dimensional. Definitely dark roasted malts, maybe patent malt even. Light underlying base sweetness and a nice subtle coconut hint in the finish. Long lingering dryness in the finish. A nice porter, and in a can!

Growler from the brewery. Sampled all the brews there and this was the best ... thick and oily, with a sweet nutty aroma. Drinks with a nice rounded flavor of dark chocolate, sweet nut, and a little bit of vanilla. Delish. (#3733, 11/8/2009)

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of vinous and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

16 oz. can shared by bsuedekum. Thanks, Blake! The dark gold font on the black sticker on the label makes it hard to read. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head that settles into a ring. Aroma of toasted and roasted malts, coconut, chocolate, mild coffee, nuts, and a hint of dark fruits. Flavor of roasted malts, toasted coconut, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, and a metallic note throughout. Medium-bodied, roasty, and metallic, with medium carbonation. Not bad and could be excellent without the metallic note. Is it the can or what?
