Pours almost completely black, only a bit of light comes in through the edges. Smells of a lot of chocolate with some caramel and coffee in the back. Taste is a bit sweet up front and then turns to some coffee bitterness, really good beer mattkorsgaard (33) - Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Big beer. Motor oil. Punch in face aroma and taste. Moderate bitter with prominent coffee flavor. Very good. Not my favorite style but well done. Mongo1965 (15) - Albertville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Pours rich and dark with a nice brown head. You find chocolate, vanilla, coffee and toast in the aroma. A big hit of chocolate with nice hints of vanilla when you take the first sip. Rich mouthfeel without being overwhelming. A nice blended finish with a trace of booziness on the end. HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2014
On tap at Avery Strong Ale Festival. Appearance: dark brown-black color, brown head. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, light raisin, vanilla. Palate: full body, sot carbonation, oily texture, light bitter finish. Taste: malty sweet to a more chocolatey sweetness to a dark chocolate bitterness. Overall, great porter, very stout like. Complex and balanced well.

Pours pitch black with limited head but lots of lacing. Nose is smoke, espresso and maybe cherry. Notes of espresso, lots of vanilla, smoke, some tart cherry in there as well. Tastes are medium sweet and medium bitter. Full, somewhat oily mouth with a very long lasting smoke and bitterness. Lively carbonation. DrunkSanta410 (940) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bomber to glass. Pours black. Aroma is strong and delicious coffee, vanilla and smoked roasted malts. Taste starts with vanilla beans and transitions to strong coffee notes. Some slight bitterness, but strong very bold flavors. Palate is thick and well carbonated. CJ_Pain (221) - Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Nice! Vanilla overpowers the coffee in the nose but reverses on the palate as the coffee becomes the dominant characteristic. Nice little change up pitch. Alcohol subtle at first as beer warms up it becomes more pronounced. Outstanding brew! Jeffjuergens (10) - - FEB 20, 2014
Dark color. Strong coffee flavor. Slightly bitter after taste. Overall a good beer. Beachmaster (558) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Poured into a tulip from a bomber. Pours a deep black with a substantial brown head that persists and leaves good lacing. Nose is coffee and dark malt. Taste is dark roast coffee and a hint of vanilla. Delicious. Hides the high ABV well. Creamy mouthfeel which coats the tongue and lasts. Outstanding.
