Bottle. Dark black pour with tan head. Aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, hints of dark coffee and slight caramel as well in there. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, coffee and caramel, nice cocoa powder as well, slight nuts, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. The ABV is hidden well.

CanIHave4Beers (4053) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a very dark brown with a khaki head of a smallish size that leaves some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is roasty and a touch ashy with some sweeter chocolate notes and a little bit of woodiness.

The flavor is enjoyably fruity and chocolaty without taking a lot of liberty with sweetness. Its got a nice medium level of roasty bitterness & a light piney hoppiness.

Nicely balanced porter, and one that Im surprised is @ such high boost.
