A good very drinkable though dry porter. Solid stuff, chocolate, anise, molasses. Black and rich looking. I did the bomber, but that was still a lot of porter.
Slight smoke, a very good roastiness. Smooth mouthfeel. Bottle from Steve beerenberger.

Bottle thanks to secret Santa! Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a strong roasted malt note with a bit of coffee and underlying bitter dark chocolate. Flavor starts with strong roasted malts and dark chocolate but finishes with dark coffee and a good amount of dryness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Thinking this may be infected, huge frothy dark beige head, will not stop foaming.   Luckily the bottle didn’t explode.   Roasty nose, slight lactose, a little ash and campfire.   Nice roasty start,
slight apple skin, semi-sweet, a little acrid.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems a hefty Porter, almost Stout like.   Somewhat airy, otherwise moderate body and mouthfeel.   Roasted, ashy, and campfire finish.
Lingering apple skin.   I could get over the airiness, if it had more body.   However, if it had more body it probably wouldn’t be as airy as it is.   Average Porter, decent roast, moderate hop, but perhaps over the
hill?   I sat on this for only 5 months...   Not bad, but when it comes out of an ice bath and it still foams pretty hard, it tells me a lot.   Thanks Bill!
