Bitter bite of chocolate here with light tempered roast. Black pour with good head. Bitter finish. Hint of rooty herbal kind of aroma in this that puts a unique zing on things. Pretty easy on palate, especially considering alcohol content. Bottle at local option.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Trade from a friend, thanks Daniel! Bottled 11/13/2014. Black with just under two fingers of light tan head. Nice webby lacing. Aromas of roast, a bit of licorice, dark chocolate, floral, pine. Tastes of dark chocolate, floral, pine, roast. Tasty but seems more like a black IPA.

22oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a bit of head. Some spice in the aroma. Medium hop bitterness though some harsh flavors.

Pours a thick black with tan head. Aromas are very meaty. Crazy resin in this one. Also brown sugar and notes of chocolate. Flavors are dominated by resin and Mexican sugar with hints of chocolate. The mouthfeel is awesome. Weird... But in a good way.

Bottle thanks to Rob. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is dark chocolate and floral hop. Thin mouth with nice roast, dark chocolate and resin hop finsh. Very good.

Bottle cheers to Rob. This had a distinct cocoa powdery feel to it. Very dry and herbal. It isn’t completely amazing but I can see why it is so highly regarded. Drinks superbly. Very nice

From bomber. Pours black with a medium thickness dense foam head. Big aroma of coffee and chocolate malts. Taste is delicious coffee and chocolate. Full mouthfeel that just feels perfect. Light carbonation. This is a delicious and fine beer. One of the best porters I’ve ever enjoyed.
