Pours dark with medium head. Aroma: a burst of chocolate and coffee, some raisins, vanilla, dark fruit and of course raosted malt. Taste: chocolate and coffee dominate, making this beer compley but at the same time drinkable. Great.

Many thanks to my "Santa 2015" jsquire for this bottle! The beer starts malty and dry. Very intense dry with a great dry caramel and chocolate aroma. Moderate bitterness, soft, round and fresh. Intense aftertaste with dry roasted caramelly malts and espresso with a great full and rich body. Fantastic.

5 oz sample at a tasting. Pours a nice dark brown with small bubbly head. Aroma was baking chocolate, coffee, roast malts, and some vanilla. Flavor follows the nose perfectly and is nicely balanced out. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a nice bold finish with bitterness from the hops. Solid porter.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Jet black pour, but holding onto light at the bottom of the glass is a deep, ruby red. Creamy, milk-white head with nice lacing. Aromas of burnt coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. The taste is not as sweet as the nose; coffee, bitter chocolate, and nutty pine, with bitter finish, but has a nice slight sweet after taste as it warms. Creamy, medium-bodied porter with a pleasant mouthfeel. Overall, this is a nice American Porter

Iím not big on porters, but this is definitely one Iíd recommend to others. Itís flavorful and itís not overpowering. Itís kind of scary looking at first, because it pours so dark, but the flavor doesnít smack you in the mouth. Itís just not a beer to drink in big sips.
