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

On tap @ brewery. Very dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma of sweet graham cracker and roasty chocolate malts. Taste was impeccable. Smoky chocolate graham cracker, a sweetness not unlike marshmellow. Creamy and toasty with a very subtle fruit action going on in the back. I might be in love.

Draft. Recommended by a local I met at another brewery, this was indeed a great beer. Black of course, and the graham aroma brought me back to my youth. The flavor is quite mocha-like. Sweet, an utterly rich dessert beer, exceptional in the narrow category. (#5640, 8/24/2014)

Pass the s'mores! This porter is hefty and has the unique taste of graham cracker! I even taste a marshmallow in there somewhere, along with vanilla and a bit of cherry on the finish. Decent lacing, not-so-great head, but the experience is pure summer camp-out fun! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TAP. Cola black with a nice bubbly head.. A lovely balance of malt, chocolate, coffee & vanilla aroma.. Easy dark malt body, that coffee/chocolate/vanilla combo is start to finish, but vanilla & softer coffee is strong at back end.. Sourced Denver beer co

This is one of my favorites from DBC. The appearance is a dark brown with a light tan head. The aroma is a toasty chocolate and vanilla. The taste is of chocolate and vanill. Its like a malty smore.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 Tap @ brewery. Dark brown appearance with a creamy, tan head. Cocoa, light espresso, wood, a touch of smoke, and chocolate-caramel maltiness. Sweet vanilla, cocoa, dark chocolate, light smoke, roasty malty flavor. Vanilla is pretty potent on the finish. Nice brew. Second time around and Im more impressed this time. Excellent, dessert-like session brew.

What a great porter. Vanilla, smoky and clearly a graham cracker flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"There sure seamed to be a plethora of quality flavored porters on this trip and this one qualifies. Actually went there for this beer. Solid feel - not thin, fairly robust for the abv. Flavor and aroma very pleasant chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, dark fruits and a wisp of smoke. Well done."

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.
