Thanks for bringing this one, OmegaX. I liked how balanced the chocolate was in this porter; there was a genuine chocolate aroma and flavor all around traditional earthy flavors. Finished dry with vanilla and a touch of coffee. Cheers!

Bottle into snifter. Aroma is big chocolate, earthy, roasted notes, light vanilla. Creamy mouth feel. Flavors are similar. Cocoa, dark chocolate, roast and some vanilla. Good stuff.

Bottle. The pour is dark with little head. The aroma has a strong malt flavor. The taste is strong of chocolate and sweet. A nice drinking porter.

Its ok, but confused about whether to be a porter or an ale. Aroma is good but the overall taste lacks punch and conviction.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Rich pour, deep dark brown, almost black, with a nice tan head that lasts. Roast, chocolate, vanilla, cream, and more. I dig it.

22 oz bottle via trade. Pours brown in color with a medium sized beige head.The aroma has roroasted malt, chocolate, some burnt character and a slight off note that I had trouble placing. The flavor is roasted malt, nice chocolate, a slight amount of char and earth. Fairly smooth drinking.
