Dark brown offwhite head. Rich caramel and vanilla aroma, just a hint of roasted nut. Nice sweetness then an awesome bitter coffee chocolate finish. Great mouthfeel and an awesome porter.

Tap @ Famous Dave’s Bozeman: Pours a deep brown color with a finger of fizzy beige head. Aroma is a nice blend of roast and bittersweet chocolate. The flavor is roasty and has a strong hoppy content before mellowing into a smoother, more roasty and chocolate finish. Different, but enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Pours dark and sits just about black in my glass with a small, creamy, khaki head. Fantastic retention. Watery, chocolaty aroma offers modest notes of roasted nuts. Medium-bodied and very creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor provides some nice chocolate and coffee notes, but is thin and fairly bland. Leans barely on the sweet side of balance - and that’s at beach temperature, 15° more than room temperature. Lengthy, chocolaty, lightly bittersweet finish. Bottle provided by otakuden!

Draft. Pours a clear black with a reddish hue, pale tan head doesn’t stick around, but this beer leaves decent lacing on your glass. Nose is gentle woodsmoke, dark malt, roasted malt, and fruit. Flavors of roast, creamy coffee, and fruit. Nice broad, dry palate. Maybe a shade thin, but overall still quite good.
