Bottle from 4 pack. Pours a nearly jet black with tannish head that settled and dissipates. Aroma is coffee and a burnt roast malt. Taste is interesting mix of coffee, chocolate, toffee and slight oatmeal notes. A nice balance between the bitterness of coffee beans and the sweetness of roast malt chocolate. A very good porter.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Tap at new bohemia in golden valley. 10oz pour. Black with small off white head. Smells of alcohol and chocolate . Smooth, sweet flavor with some chocolate elements. More flavor development as it warms. Good. Glad the devil made me do it. ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2016

On tap @ Radio Maria. Black and viscous with a persistent khaki head. Loads of creamy coffee character, silky mouthfeel, full and richly roasty, moderately bitter finish. Yum.

Pours a nice very dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is dark fruit. Taste is sweet roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate milk and a bit of espresso. Surprisingly smooth and creamy for the style. blueshockey24 (649) - Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2016

Bottle shared with dusty and Brian...nose is all coffee and a dark roast at that....taste mellows out a lot...more oatmeal comes and the coffee doesn’t dominate. DWestrick (819) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2015
tap. kind of average imperial porter. nothing really jumped out - was very robust, but kind of bland Itzjerm (3135) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Amazing vanilla wood barrel and bourbon nose. With lots of coffee aroma. Coffee however on tongue is almost to strong. Still a great light sweetness and a great beer.
