3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful appearance, beautiful color, medium to almost dark brown head, very toasty sweet aroma with notes of dark chocolate. It seems very carbonated which hides the mouth of dark roasted grains. It finishes dry and bitter with a taste of hopes and chocolate. Over all this is a very good beer that I would suggest trying. For a portor it is good, but it doesn't have the seasonal flavor it's name suggest.

Nice head. Not a syrupy stout at all and still high abv. Lacking in aroma. Good mouthfeel, very drinkable. Bitterness from roasted grains covers alcohol flavor pretty well. Might be too kitchen sinky. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasty

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Via trade with LostHops287. The aroma is beautiful, vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit, licorice, slightly oak (not sure why). The appearance is deep black, deep tan head. Nice film on glass. The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, coffee, molasses, licorice. The finish is lightly boozy (the only place the booze exerts itself), semi-sweet chocolate, roasty. Nice thick body. Accross the board excellent.

Poured a deep dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma of sweet, alcohol soaked dark fruit, dark chocolate and roast malt. Medium to full body, flavour as the aroma with a hint of vanilla fudge, Very good if not quite great.
