DrSilverworm (6975) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Sample from a 12.7oz bottle. Dark brown color. Minimal khaki head. Bits of lace. Great red wine, coffee, vanilla aroma. Bigger body. Very light carbonation. Nice light chewiness. Bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Alcohol is well-hidden. Great stuff. Very light carbonation, but very delicious.

750 ml bottle to taster. Looks good; a dark cola with tan lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, and red wine. Tastes like it smells with some oak, but less balanced. Average on the palate. Good, not great.

Bottle 0,375l at Mikkeler, Copenhagen. Pours a black colour. Head disappeared quickly. Aroma of red wine, coffee, dark malt and oak. Taste of wine, nicely meshed with coffee and a subtle bitter chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque black beer with a short lived mid tan head. Softish and semi dry palate, smooth. Rich dark malt smoothed out by mellow wood (but no sweet vanilla oak here). Mild chocolate and milder coffee. The red wine is subtle but definitely there and a nice counterpart to the rich malt. Finishes smooth and dry with a little zing.

OMFG. Now, I LOVE this beer, it fills every single tiny box of what I expect from a porter; and I would make wild passionate love to any of its female relations - but you just have this sense that maybe, just maybe, there’s more to come. One day a porter will beat this, but probably not in my lifetime, MY GODS - time to drink myself into a stupor and believe that Nirvana is chocolate honey with a head.

A - Dark brown-black with a finger of frothy chocolate colored head. Fades at a normal pace. S - Dark chocolate and dark caramel malts, roasted coffee, molasses, black licorice, oak, vanilla, red wine, some dark fruit, and some booze. T - Dark chocolate and sweet dark caramel malts, roasted coffee, black licorice, molasses, oak, red wine, vanilla, and some dark fruit, some citrus and pine hops and a bit of bitterness, and some booze. M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a warming and sweet finish. D - Nicely balanced big imperial Stout. Nice body and mouthfeel. Red wine adds some nice depth and complexity.
