Aroma is creamy, roasted malts with some caramel hints. Taste is a deep maltiness that has caramel and licorice character. There is also nice mineral flavors comming from the famous Samuel Smith ground water. The malt and bitterness is very well balanced. The slight bitterness at end finishes very smoothly. Body is black is with a beige creamy head that retains well.

Flavors sweet burnt sugar and roasting this with bread and biscuit flavors that is followed with some chocolate no hop very malt forward.

floydslip (155) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2014
Opaque dark brown beer that forms a creamy beige head with excellent retention. Nose of stewed prunes, brown sugar, oak, and bitter chocolate. Flavor is actually more subtle than the aroma, but still pronounced. It has a light smoky character with overtones of burnt chocolate, dark vinegar, light coffee, and dried fruit. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation, this is delicious.

HuskerTan (447) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. A- Mocha, chocolate, malty, roasty. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Mocha, coffee, cocoa, slightly smoky, slightly malty. P- Medium body, slightly thin texture, average carbonation, creamy finish. O- This seemed a little more thin than the description says as far as the body goes, but the flavors are nice. The mocha and cocoa notes aren’t overpowering but make for a nicely complex and balanced porter. Maybe one of the best porters I have had. A little on the dry side, but plenty good.
