4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500mL Bottle, purchased at the brewery. Saline and oceanic chocolate lusts after freshly hewn chestnut logs, visions of raw chocolate abound. On the palate, a rich and round beast, booming of hazlenut spread, fresh Parisian decaf, peppery charcoal, and warming alcohols. This is quite good dark beer. Solid, reliable, but nuanced, expressive, and of high quality. It doesn’t overstep its bounds an make classic high gravity dark beer mistakes, like too much roast, too much chocolate malt, too much sugar, not enough sugar, or too much alcohol. It walks all of these lines perfectly and that’s why it’s so damn fantastic.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 Tap at The Farmhouse in Burlington with the ECBT crew. Deep black in color with a very attractive tan head. Aroma is big on coffee, chocolate malts, and a toasted nuttiness. Taste has a little smoky quality but predominantly chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and roasted notes. Smooth, silky mouthfeel with plenty of depth. Really enjoyable finish with lingering coffee aftertaste. One of the better porters I?ve had and not just because of the brewery name. Delicious.
