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.

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.
