4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is very pleasant and sweet, but the alcohol scent is strong. the alcohol is noticeable in the taste as well but blends well with the dark complexion of this beer. Smooth and weighty on the palate. Its a bit bitter but I do enjoy this style.

Pours a brown almost black color with a small tan head. Aromas heavy on chocolate/coffee with some smoke. Nice bitterness mixed with the coffee/chocolate flavors. Excellent porter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
If you’re thinking about having more than a couple of beers you may want to share this bottle with a friend. Though it’s quite filling, its high ABV is well masked by dark roasted coffee character. Dark, heavy aromas match the mocha colored head.

This beer is complex and yet so easy to drink. It has so many notes it could write an opera. Share this with a good friend and you won't regret it.
