Bottle. Pours black with a beige head and little lace. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and light notes of dark fruits. Flavor the same with a nice roasted malt and a good chocolate character in this beer. A smooth texture. A good beer.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft at Long Trail Brewery. Pours dark brown to black with generous brown head that lasts. Amazing porter, lots of chocolate and malt, but not overwhelming. Hints of fruit. No alcohol burn for such a strong beer. A lot of flavors and aromas that blend awesomely.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber into pint glass. Opaque dark brown, thin quickly dissipating mahogany head. Earthy chocolate dominates the nose, with a hint of typical porter roast. In the mouth, dry, a bit of bitterness. More cocoa powder in the backend, and a bit of alcohol heat. Very well balanced, drinks easily. Nice done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An awesome blend of chocolate & coffee in the aroma draw you in! The pour is opaque w/ a thin mocha head that leaves good lacing. The mouthfeel is smooth yet complex. The taste is chocolate w/ a roasty bitter undertone that really comes out in the finish! This is one damn good beer!

22oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Sweet malt flavors of coffee along with some chocolate and alcohol notes. Somewhat thin palate. Not bad but leaves me wanting one of the better impy stouts available out there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Nose is coffee, cocoa, caramel and hay. Rich and creamy with a tang and some char. Taste is espresso, milk chocolate, licorice and prune. Lingering bitter cocoa. Great work by Long Trail.

Black is the night devoid of stars.
Black glides effortlessly down the throat, velvety-sweetness not to be overlooked.
Cold and absinthe, warm and dark.
This winter is brought to you by this collaboration and artistic form.
Just the right balance of carbonation at low temps to dance... Taste the dark chocolate and cocoa nibs. A dark at the back of the tongue perfection.
