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.

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.

Bottle. The pour is black with a thin head. The aroma is nice, malty and roasty, near perfect for this style. The taste is very nice as well. The malt mixes well and a perfect hint of roast. Nails it for a porter. Well done!
