Dark cola brown. Tinny cookie dough on the nose. Dilute, meh porter. Hints of something decent, but that’s about it. Hints. (Lies!)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Colour...basically black with a thick tan head. Nose...oak, vanillin, toffee. Palate...creamy though not esp thick. Lots of oak and some smoke with an ashen/char aspect that exists throughout the palate. There’s plenty of chocolate, as well, but in a subdued manner that just happens to be omnipresent through the experience.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
November 2012 bottle. Pours deep, nearly black brown, slight tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is surprisingly grainy, but that doesn’t carry over to the taste. The taste is very smooth chocolate, light espresso, some cereal, oak, vanilla, bourbon. Light hoppiness. Dry and crisp finish, which is excellent. Real good and easy drinking.
