12 ounce can, canned on 03/12/15. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head that stayed around a little while. There’s also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and some earthy hoppiness. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but there’s also some molasses noticeable too. It seems hoppier than I expected it to be. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. One of my friends gave me a can of this, I think I’m going to have to pick up a 6 pack the next time I see it!

Can thanks to Alex! Pours opaque black with a small beige head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is roasty with dry baking cocoa notes, rye bread. Flavor is light sweet and medium bitter, dark cocoa, roasted malts, a hint of rubber. Medium body, lingering bitterness into the far finish. Solid enough.

Dark porter with no light coming thought. Very little lacing. Aroma is roasty chocolate, but a little faint. Taste is deeper. Roasty smooth chocolate. Great porter. Balanced

Can shared on the bus during RBWG 2015. Pours clear brown with a foamy off-white head. The nose holds burnt pine, light roast, cocoa. Light sweet flavor with ashy roast, dried dark fruits and dry earth. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. More ashy roast, earth and bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Not bad.
