I really like this robust porter and all the complex malts that go with it. Tons of chocolate on the nose and palate and a big finish that just doesn’t go away. A very fun beer to drink.

16oz bottle 12/8/14 (Jewel Mix a Six)-40° in English Pint-Pours black with a big brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste of the same with a bit of smoke. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. One of the better porters.

Draft @ Crescent Moon. Not much aroma, a little roast. Dark black, with a touch of red on the edge. Beige head. Chocolate flavor, just a touch of bitterness to offset. Appropriate, full body. Very good porter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can thanks to GrandaddyKC. Dark black color, thin lasting head in the snifter. The aroma is dark chocolate, burnt espresso beans, and a mild citrus note underneath all the chocolate.
The flavor shows a large amount of roasted coffee and chocolate flavors upfront. Thicker body for a porter with a chewy molasses and caramel candy texture. The hop bitterness is just enough to cut the sweetness a bit. Carbonation gives a smooth creamy feel over the tongue. Nice level of flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can to a tulip. The beer pours a dark ruby brown, almost black, with a finger thick khaki colored head with decent lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, and some vanilla. Flavor is coffee, dark chocolate, and vanilla. There as a nice roasty taste that lingers in your mouth. It’s pretty creamy and leaves you looking forward to the next sip. Pretty decent.
