Bottle. A dark brown color with a lush brown head. A chocolate malty aroma with a touch of sweetness at the end that is spot on for a porter. A sweet chocolate flavor with a nice balance of malty goodness, sweet flavors, and toasted malts. A nice smooth finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Mostly black body (thin brown highlight at the edge) topped by a creamy cappuccino like head. Light aromas but some cocoa, vanilla, cherry and almond come through. Flavours of milk coffee, light chocolate, vanilla and soft dark fruit in the mouth. Velvety mouth feel is a real highlight. Finishes fairly dry leading into a light chocolate aftertaste. Really enjoyed this.

Huge amount of coffee scent with sweet milk chocolate then the roasted malts finish this my nose could live in brew. Smooth silk like black color with small tan head that does not last. Sweet chocolate starts off the complex flavor of this porter. Then followed by tons of bittersweat chocolate with a touch of roasted malts and then some hop bitterness that smooths into creaminess at the very end. Full cream like body with great carbonation for the style. The best porter I’ve ever drank to date. You guy make grew brews don’t ever stop. Awesome brew, will drink again.

Another well-made heretic beer, but unfortunately nothing special about it other than it was nicely brewed.

On Tap @ Bay Area Craft Beer Festival, Martinez, California (16.04.2016)
Gęsty, czarny, nieprzejrzysty trunek. Bardzo dobra kremowa piana. Do samego końca pozostaje na szkle.
Bardzo solidna paloność. Akcenty kawy i gęstej mlecznej, a potem gorzkiej czekolady. Umiarkowana goryczka, czysty gładki czekoladowo-palony finisz.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like it is dark enough to have come from a grave. Beauty nougat colored head too.
Smells slightly chocolaty and slightly roasty. Not overwhelming.
FLAVOR- thin body, but amazing depth. The sip evolves from front to back starting with nit of bitterness and ending with the slightest chocolate sweetness.
Very solid porter. Bordering on stout.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma: Medium roasty, grape, Medium-light coffee. Light lactic.
Appearance: Clear, very dark body with red highlights. Massive light-brown head, large bubbles, rocky. Good retention.
Flavour: Medium high roast, bitterness. Medium coffee, grape. Light lactic. Dry finish with lingering roast.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Medium warming.
Overall: Not sure if the lactic is an infection or on purpose. "Light warming" is an understatement. Otherwise the beer is nice.
660 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

Pours black with a large tan head.
Nose shows some nutty, bready and toast malt. A fair bit of milk chocolate too.
Flavours include more nutty malt and chocolate, reminiscent of Ferrero Rocher. A little sweet bready malt is present too followed by a subtle roasty bitterness.
