COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices. A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate diving into a semi-dry finish of roasted malt and biscuit. 5.6% ABV

Can. This is a thin and watery porter with out much to distinguish it. Not worth a try.

Beaver (1866) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2016
12 oz can. Pours amber brown with a big fluffy light tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet acidic smokey roast chocolate malt.

The flavor is very sweet roasted chocolate malt with some metallic bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and watery.

Overall, too sweet and kind of flawed.

Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle. High creamy lasting light brown head. Pitch black body. Roasted malt cocoa vanilla aroma and flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish.

StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Canned. Dark brown with a smallish beige head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma was weak and indistinct with perhaps a trace of chocolate. The taste featured cocoa and graham crackers. The palate was much thinner than I prefer. Finished with a lingering metallic aftertaste. Overall: The graham cracker notes conjured up the memory of a cheap cheesecake crust, and therein lies the problem. With cheesecake I expect a full creamy palate and it was just not there. Those quibbles aside I did enjoy this but I probably wont buy another.

On tap. Tan head and dark brown color. A-earthy, roasty, slight cocoa. T-sweet cocoa/roasty, earthy hops

Brown pour. Chewy body with a hint of char and cinnamon. Mild chocolate flavor. Pretty solid for a flagship porter.

Enjoyed on tap at Watercourse in Denver, CO while on vacation. I didn't take tasting notes, but remember this being a delicious dark porter with sweet notes of chocolate and light marshmallow. Would have again.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 From the can the beer is dark brown with light barely penetrating, the head is this but lingures and is a frothy chocolate brown, the aroma is light almost nondescript but there is a faint note of chocolate, the taste is initially milk chocolate and the finish is sweet reminiscent of roasted marshmallows but quickly dissipates and ends as an ale.

Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2016
Can at home - from Antenna America, Yokohama. Black - offwhite head. Chocolate. Bisquit notes. Vanilla. Smokey notes. Light spicy notes. Roasted malts. Dryness. OK.

hockey9930 (321) - - APR 10, 2016
Black with thin head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Has a light bitterness of dark chocolate, but the finish is sweet and creamy. The palate isn’t quite as thick or creamy as the taste.
