If you want a roasty/hoppy beer, this one will hit the spot. This one is not as in your face as stones arrogant bastard ale, but is a little in your face.

Opaque dark brown pour. Thick tan head. Tons of lacing. Lots of grapefruit, citrus, and pine hop aromas. Mild coffee and chocolate roastiness. Thick mouthfeel. Super drinkable. Sweet flavor. Hop flavors are still there but not as dominant. A milky flavor to it. Maybe brewed with lactose. There is a roasty flavor but not the typical bitterness of the dark malts. Very impressive beer. ---Rated via iPhone

When I first smelled this I was instantly like "wow. This is good!". I normally don't buy darker beers and if I would have realized this was a porter I probably wouldn't have bought it. If I didn't see the color I wouldn't have guessed it was a darker beer. Maybe I just am getting different taste buds. Anyways. Has mild chocolate or very slight toffy. It is on the bitter side of darker beers but very good balance. Loved this beer and a beer I would buy again.

Somewhat subtle malty aroma belies an intense hop character in the palate. Amazing hop flavors eventually give way to bitterness and malt. This is in many ways several beers rolled into one.

22oz bomber. Pours a rich dark brown/black color with a half finger of fluffy tan head. Massive aroma of piney hops, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is strong piney hops up front, followed by rich roasted coffee notes, and dark chocolate. I love this beer!!

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Dark brown-black and opaque, a little wine, a little roast and coke aroma, Bitter, malty, very bitter and a little coffee taste. Full body, dry finish. Tasty.

This beer is absolutely amazing. At first pour I had my doubts as it didn’t have the best smell, but don’t judge this beer on that alone. What it lacks there it gains in it’s appearance and taste. Overall amazing. I may have my new favorite beer.

A cerveja é excelente, mas não na minha opinião não merece nota 100, degustada durante reunião da Confrabacon em Ribeirão Preto (SP), Brazil.

Awesome. Pours black. Lots of aroma here: notes of toasty malts, faint chocolate, faint smoke, woody, and slightly hoppy. Taste is sweet, malty, toasty, bitter pine, nutty, and faint caramel. Complex. It really develops and begs for another taste. Finish lingers just slightly but really nice. It’s a mind bender... enjoy.
