3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I think I first sampled this at the Hops on the Hill beer/food festival in Green Bay/De Pere, summer 2012. I believe this one was paired with the mini chocolate cupcakes. Anyway, actually drinking straight from bottle (unusual for me) because I’m short a glass right now. This beer is delicious. Just a huge, rich, decadent porter. Chocolate, coffee, roast, everything is on full display. Not exactly sessionable, but this thing is a flavor bomb. Awesome. Tons of bitterness sticks on the tongue--straddles the line between hops and dark chocolate. Will need to try from a glass some time.

pours black with a medium tan head. aroma is malt, toast, hint of coffee. The taste is substantial. Dark malt, bitter coffee. Heavy. Long bittersweet finish. Good beer, but I wouldn’t want to session it all night.

Poured from bottle, pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head, the aroma has nice notes of light roast with some coffee as well, the flavor has a good amount of coffee at first with some burnt malt and chocolate in the finish, nice mouthfeel, not bad at all.

12 oz. bottle picked up at Woodman’s. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, a mix of bitter dark chocolate and sweeter, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, decent body, some mild plus bitterness to the finish, the nose is a bit better than the flavor, overall pretty good.
