The bottle popped on me and all I got was head for the first few pours. The aroma is sweet and smoky. The flavor is difficult to nail down because it fizzes up like Coca Cola as soon as I take a sip.

A deep dark brown porter with a super thick frothy brown head. In aroma, a nice mix of Brett and bitter chocolate, alcohol burn, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet peaty chocolate with dark fruits, a bit lighter than expected, but still nice. Shared with GRM.

From a bottle into an English pint, small creamy light brown head, nose of roast and molasses.Medium body, average carbonation. Some what thin and lack luster for a Robust Porter, but could serve as a moderate session beer.
