On tap at the brewery in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours a dark brown with a good sized head. Nice creamy mouth feel with chocolate and coffee being the main flavors. I knew it was going to be good, but it exceeded expectations.

Bottle from the brewery. I had this in India. How many awesome ticks can you get in India? Not many. Dark brown/black in color with a well-formed tan head. Big coffee and chocolate aroma with a hint of sweet rum. Sweet malty flavor, rather chocolatey with good bitterness level. Smooth, soft palate with medium-full body. Really good! Nice to see Vinnie branching out a bit.

Thanks to errl for sharing this one. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some huge chocolate notes a swell as some roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same with the addition of some mint and very light smoke. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice porter.
