Bottle from slowbeer. Nice porter, quite alcoholic. Aromas of amonia, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is sweet, with long length. Palate is velvety, fizzy, and medium bodied. Dark brown, with a disappearing head.

On draught at Congregation, Long Beach. Good solid dark brown with a good tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, fig, dark plum, mocha. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, sweet on the palate, hint of bitter chocolate on the finish. Slight spicy hop presence in the aftertaste. Taste is chocolate, hint of toast coffee, grains of paradise, graham crackers. Enjoyable.

A really solid and good porter. the first beer from Heretic that I’ve tried. Has chocolate and espresso in the aroma and a full bodied palate that isn’t heavy.

22oz bottle, from Trooper for a locals swap. First brew from heretic, wow this is good stuff, a really solid porter, only lacking in palate to me, and maybe a bit of hop profile but still a really darned good porter quite the surprise.

Good beer. Nice aroma like chocolate coffee with hopps. Good carbonation. Lite brown head almost black in color. Chocolaty malt taste not to sweet. Good

Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Big thanks to Armin / arminjewell for sharing. Pours a dark brown/black appearance with a small brown head. Roasty dark chocolate, big cocoa, light coffee, vanilla aroma. Big chocolate, caramel, a bit woody, milk chocolate sweet flavor. Pretty tasty.
