750ml bottle shared by luttonm @Johnny’s Off License. Thank you Matt! Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma scura color cappuccino, molto persistente. Al naso straordinario tripudio di tostature, tavoletta di cioccolata artigianale fondente, gianduja, caffè. In bocca è perfettamente bilanciata, attacco dolce, cioccolatoso con finale caffettoso e amaro perfetto, molto lunga e persistente a dispetto della gradazione alcolica contenuta. Corpo pieno, lunghissima, cremosa, vellutata al palato, carbonazione media. Semplicemente accademica. L'Everest della birra. jc1762 (1633) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 8, 2017

The nose shows roasted coffee bean and notes of steel tank.
The palate is medium bodied and well carbonated. Roasted coffee bean with notes of steel tank. Moderate coffee bitterness on the finish.

500ml bottled poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ black! with hardly any head.
S~ sooo much roasty coffee! a little sweetness, kind of like a milk stout followed by dark chocolate and some figs.
T~ Cocoa, roasty malts, and dark figs up front. followed by a crazy sweetness on the finish with a dark coffee aftertaste. wow! way more coffee on the nose though.
M~ oh so smooth! slightly carbonated, has more of a stout feel then a porter.
O~ absolutely delicious! most flavor i’ve ever experienced in a porter. this is the newest batch, i would love to try a bottle of last years!
Perfect black pour w/ a retaining mocha head & excellent lacing. Aroma is exquisite but not really detectable & rather unusual. Taste is chocolate candy like with a coffee bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth & overall is a top notch beer! Must try!
