Pours a thick black with tan head. Aromas are very meaty. Crazy resin in this one. Also brown sugar and notes of chocolate. Flavors are dominated by resin and Mexican sugar with hints of chocolate. The mouthfeel is awesome. Weird... But in a good way.

Pours nearly black w/ a thin tan head that leaves a good ring of lacing. Iím kind of in love w/ the in your face hop aroma that has just a subtle chocolate undertone. The taste is of a chocolate porter up front & finishes w/ a huge hop bang! Easily one of the most unique porters Iíve had & highly recommended!

Tasted from draft. Pours black with a beige head. Very complex beer. Aroma of chocolate, earthy grasses and grains and pine. Taste of chocolate, coffee, hint of coffee and caramel, pine, a little stone fruit and dark fruits. Great tasting and interesting beer. Moderate bitterness with great well balanced malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose is Rich roasted dark chocolate goodness with some interesting hops going on. Taste was mildly to medium sweet with a good amount of spruce. Body was somewhat lively. finish was a good warming with a touch of hop bitterness. a very different and interesting porter.
