Great beer. Nose of cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is subtle cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Almost no coconut as described on the bottle. Mouthfeel is great for a porter. Overall a really well done beer for what they were going for.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a thin ring of khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, brown sugar and loads of baking spices. Taste is mostly baking spices with dark chocolate and something a little sweet. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation. And a super long finish. Overall, awesome. Another pipeworks winner.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells totally foul - cinnamon, coconut, funky toffee something. This is hard to continue to smell. Yucko. Cinnamon and chewy goop, coconut, licorice, light sour, something green, total mistake having this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep murky brown, near opaque with a rocky fading head. The aroma has moderate vapours of cinnamon, clove and vanilla bean along with some toasted bread. Smell like a liquid dinner. Hint of smoke and earthiness as well on the nose. The taste is more of the same with pronounced spices and root to earth backbone.
