This is a huge beer with tons of flavor. Chocolate, fruits and roasty flavors are overwhelmed by raisin which lasts through the finish. I would prefer the raisin were toned down a bit. But still a monster beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body, with a lasting tan head. Good lacing. Malty aroma, with liqourice, vanilla, and a surprisingly strong hop presence. A taste of roasted malts up front, proceeding into slightly sweet vanilla/liqourice territory, and finishing quite dry with decent hopbitterness and a lingering roasty finish. Medium/thick mouthfeel, slight carbonation. Enjoyable porter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ah, good old Koff’s Porter, one of my all time favorites. Time to rate it:
Bottled. Opaque black, with big, brown foamy head, nice lacing.
Sweet, strongly roasted malt aroma, dark chocolate, some appropriate hops in the background, and a whiff of alcohol.
Flavor likewise of sweet roasted malts and dark chocolate, caramel, some hop bitter and nicely warming alcohol. Bitterish and warm alcoholic aftertaste. Very smooth, medium full body.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Total black, half-inch brown head that fades to big-bubble scum and lasts considerably. Aroma a bit subdued, dark chocolate, roastiness, earthy hops. Excellent taste: dark chocolate and roasted malt interplay, caramelization, coffee in the middle palate and coffee-bitter finish. Very slightly sweet upfront. Rasping on the tongue, aftertaste has a slight lactose-like sweetness. Moderate to high carbonation, sits well on the tongue, not watery but not thick.
