A giant bottle of beer from Z and Z. Pours an opaque dark black with tan colored head. Aroma of roasted malts and wood. Taste is pretty complex, with malts, chocolates, coffee, wood, and hints of booze.

Maximum enjoyment. Set liver to high alert of AWESOME. Bubbling up from the ebony abyss this mocha headed sea-beast, she beckons. Heed her call b’ys, heed it well. Wood, cocoa, espresso, leather, whiskey, earth on the nose. Taste matches with caramel, vanilla, licorice, smoke and toasted marshmallows. Texture is divine, thick and syrupy but not at all hard to drink. Anchor’s aweigh, pound some more of this before ye ship off next!

On tap @ beermongers, only$4 for a pint!. Seemed the aroma kept changing--molasses, caramel, woodsmoke, coffee, cardboard (not all at once,) impenetrable dark body, frothy tan head. flavors of roast malt, caramel, bitter chocolate & smoke. body lighter than expected but sill with some oil. fine brew

Bottle - had a tough time with cork on this one. Pours black with a huge mocha head. The aroma is smoky malt and bourbon. The taste adds oak, chocolate, and a sweet vanilla finish. There's also a very mild citrus hop note in the background. This is very complex. Medium body, marshmallow mouthfeel, and high carbonation. Wow - Uinta's crooked line series never disappoints!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, pours a hazy dark brown color with a medium tan head that leaves good lacing. Smells of bourbon, oak, chocolate, roasted malt and caramel. Tastes of the same things. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy with good carbonation. Great flavor for a barrel aged porter. Nicely balanced too. Definitely going to drink this again in the near future.

750ml bottle from Proof (I think). Black-brown pour with a big foamy tan head and strong retention. Aroma is dusty, mineral, cocoa. Tastes are roasty, nuts, vanilla, cherry, light licorice, chocolate, dark fruit, rye, earthy, little woody. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Tasted on draft. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a light tan head. Good lacing. Very nice aroma of roasted malt, a lot of chocolate and a little sweet bourbon. Full bodied and very creamy and clingy on the palate. Big time roasted malt and chocolate tastes with a hint of bourbon. Definitely not dominated by the bourbon. Very smooth and well balanced. Excellent porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
