12 oz bottle purchased at brewery. Poured into tulip. Chocolate and cereal malts in the aroma. Appearance is black with small creamy head which fades quickly leaving a little lacing. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Next to no bitterness. Palate is medium body. Oily creamy texture. with soft to flat carbonation. Fairly smooth finish. Over all pretty good beer. Decent for a chocolate porter. Personally I like them a little less sweet. Not the best I have tried but far from the worst. Price a brewery is a bit steep, so value wise I give it 2 out of 5!

12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a good lookig thicker bodied deep black and a very sparse tight foamy beige head. Aroma is rather nice, real chocolate, milk, dark grains. Body is medium but carbonation is rather fizzy and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor isnt quite as good as the aroma, notes of burnt malts, light chocolate, bread crusts, dry dusty grains and a hint of vanilla extract.

Dark, very strong chocolate with a slight scent of vanilla. Great head, smooth going down. A very enjoyable porter. The warmer it gets the better it tastes. Sip this one.
