Bottle to pint glass Dark chocolate, cherry, toasted malt, and molasses. Black as night with a 2 cm thick creamy tan head that over time reduces to a thin layer with no lacing. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee along with some grains. This is pretty thin, being almost watery for me.

Strange that with this name this comes out of California! Bottle, dark, clear, slight reddish highlights. Very chocolaty but with some vegetable notes. Clean start to it, with chocolate, then vegetables, then coffee. Odd, okay, not great.

Petkus331 (224) - Redford, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2014
A nice acidic aroma of apple with milk chocolate and some roasty malt. Appearance is a nearly opaque dark brown with light tan head and some curtains. Taste is similar to a dark Belgian with apple, raisin, and cantaloupe fruit tied in with the port character of coffee-ish roast malt. Palate is standard for a porter. Overall, this was surprisingly good, my first brew from this brewery.

From bottle. Got for a tremendous $1.99. Dark black and tan head lingering throughout. Nose of dark fruits and dark roast coffee. Tastes of strong coffee, roasted malt, and dark fruits of raisins and faint dark cherry.
