4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Rich, nearly black pour with a tan head. Nose of toasted nuts, complex coffee, chocolate, toffee, huge fruits--plums, prunes, raisins. So much going on here. A big, big beer, but not boozy or overwhelming. Palate was lighter than expected for the ABV as well. So tasty.
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 On tap @ BierCaB. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Malty and fruity tones. Malt, fruit, caramel and hops. Full body with a long bitter / fruity finish. jflopsu (1795) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 Pours black with brown head. A strong bourbon, coffee and chocolate aroma. A strong mix of flavors - coffee, chocolate, bourbon, malts, and light vanilla. A balanced afteraste of malts, bourbon, and chocolate. SolarSam (85) - Interlaken, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2017
A rich and high ABV brew for after dinner nightcap. A nose of rich resin. The tongue of tenacious prune aftertaste. Lovely, if there were a smidgen more sweetness and thickness for the tongue... well that would be lovely.

Aroma; roasted malts fruity style, fruit bowl incl berries, pruney malts, a super blend, mature with oakey dokey edge.
Look; black, it’s a porter!
Taste; roasted malts, malted dark syrup, sweet nut, dark fruits blended with chocolate bites, sweet liquorice fudge - lingering sweet solid finish.
Overall; and it’s not hard to get it either. WOW-Porter!

Aroma dominated by chocolate and warm alcohol,faint toffee and cocoa. Same for the taste. Medium carbonation and medium body, oily and a bit creamy. Nice long and warm finish of sweet molasse and alcohol. SamVimes21 (562) - - JUL 4, 2017
Bottle from the HAND ,Falmouth , black with beige head with a dark roasted malt , toffee , dark chocolate and molasses taste with a aftertaste of dark malt ,dark chocolate and molasses mainly but a truly awesome porter . colui72 (1098) - HONG KONG - JUN 17, 2017
Pours black and dense, with a small brown head, which faded quickly, slimy lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruit and vanilla. Tastes boozy, medium sweet, low bitterness, notes of vanilla, roasted malts, ripe dark fruits and molasses. Full body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall a very stout-ish porter, thick, tasty: a silent (not too silent) killer.
