3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ebony with slight head. Lacing left behind. Medium Carbonation. Malty sweetness of chocolate and molasses with hints of vanilla when inhaled. Sweet on the tongue with a bitter lingering. Smoky coffee aftertaste. Smooth on the palate, leaving an effervescent tingle. An easy drinking flavoured porter.

Rich and chocolaty with a bit of roast. Sweet up front turning more bitter in the finish. Still definitely a dessert beer, though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: nearly opaque black, one fat finger of fluffy tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: milky chocolate, light coffee, malted milk, lightly nutty. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Full body, moderate-low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Sweet and milky chocolate leads out, but it’s backed up with enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Decent depth and pleasantly balanced. (14/20)
