Bottle. The look is brownish black in color, thin tan head, and and dark. The smell is malt, coffee, cocoa, dirt, and oreos. The taste is the same but not as appealing.

Not bad. Not my preferred porter. A little watery, but it makes it a bit more sessionable. Aroma is nice, a subtle sweetness. Tastes like weak coffee.

12oz bottle, picked up along the road in WI, IX/13. Solid tasty, pitch black porter with overtones of roasty, blackened malts, coffee beans and cocoa. Mid-full palate, creamy, easily drinkable, if not as complex as advertised.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark black with a thin dark khaki head that settles quickly. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla bean, candied fruit, molasses. Somewhat thin texture leading to a slightly creamy mouthfeel tasting of chocolate malt, toffee and finishing with a bit of bittersweet chocolate tartness. Nice and easy drinking porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours almost black with less than half a finger of nut brown head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with a little dark fruit and some tart cherry skin. A little red wine in there also. Taste is light bitter. Coffee and dark chocolate with a little tart red wine. Full bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a pretty long finish. Overall, pretty good. Something i would gladly drink again.
