Dark brown pour with a creamy, light brown head that leaves nice lacing. Light coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of smoke on the nose. Sweet flavor with good mouthfeel. Maybe the best porter Ive tasted.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Very dark brown with a brown tinged head. Smells like caramel, roastiness, cereal, a little coffee, spice, and citrus. Fairly dry, a little sour, moderately bitter, full body, with a fine grained, pillowy head. Taste is like the aroma with just a touch of ash.

NikkTwist (3044) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Opaque black pour that started with a scoop of frothy tan foam that reduced to a thick ring and splashes of lace. Medium body, though not particularly creamy or silky. Glossy dark chocolate flavors with notes of coffee, liquorice and vinyl. Hints of charcoal grill and cigarettes. Flavors run wide but not too deep.

So I bought this bottle a year ago I was excited to drink it, but I kind of forgot about so there it sat in my cellar for a year. But this weekend I needed an imperial stout for a kick ass burger recipe. So looked at what I had but had nothing in sight but then I spotted this hidding behind a couple bottles Lagunitas Sucks. So I brought it up stairs cracked it open and poured half the bottle in a bowl with 1lb of ground beef, 1lb of ground pork, some basil, fennel, salt and pepper to taste. Any way I then drank the final half of the bottle directly out of the bottle while standing over the grill cooking these burgers up. Burgers turned out fantastic. Beers is awsome mild coffee good vannila touch of earth mild mild sour finish.
