From bottle. Poured with big long lasting head; tastes of hops up front then a nice porter roastiness. A very interesting and drinkable beer. Maybe just a shade too roasty

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Very dark brown, brown creamy head with nice stability. Hoppy and roasted malty nose and taste, some blackcurrant/berry fruitiness, earthy, bitter finish. As it warms, it gets more rounded, some vanilla, bitterness in the finish diminishes, mouthfeel gets even more soft. Silky mouthfeel, light-medium body, low-medium carbonation.

Bottle @ derat, large sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, coffee, some piney hops. Creamy texture. Roasty bitterness in taste, but also quite hoppy like a hoppy porter without going towards a black ipa. Good beer.
