Can shared with friends, purchased at the awesome Alchemist location in Stowe. Plenty of Head Toppers to go around guys. Notes are heavily Burnt like most are saying: overly roasted coffee, ash, tobacco. chocolate, and bitter lawn grass. I finished a few ounces but others dumped it.

Can from source poured into mug. Weed, coffee, roasted malt and nuts, molasses, caramel and oak aroma. Complex. Harshly bitter for a porter but that’s no problem. Good sweet balance that lingers in the end. Great stuff.

Can into a wineglass showing pitch black center and half a finger of latte colored foam. The nose shows roasted malts with a light Belgian yeast influence. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Strong burnt notes throughout and a very coffee mild tartness. Finish is more burnt malt.

Enjoyed at a tasting at Tom’s last night. 16 oz can. The plur is a light and dirty clear dark brown. You can see through this, which is strange. There is a light tan colored head that slowly leaves with no lace. The aroma is humongous roast. It’s bitter roasted malts through and through. There is a light earthy hop to it, but the bitterness of the roasted malts just turn this one off for me. The flavor is the same. All bitter roasty malt. There is a charred grain thing going on as well. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a softer carbonation that doesn’t help anything and a lingeringly bitter roast on the finish. Did I mention it’s bitter and roasty?
