This is a great beer and my only regret is that I could not try it prior to the expiration date running out. It makes for a perfect winter beer and I wish that they would make it into a regular beer.

Olfactory: Unfortunately, because this beer was not stored in a refrigerator the smell retains positive coffee and toffee smells but does not have the power it likely once had.

Appearance: This beer looks like a heartwarming winter beer and has a head that excites. If you don't pour it out very gently then it will spill out of a standard pub glass.

Taste: Silky smooth with everything that you would want from beer that went through bean, coffee, chocolate, and oak barrel brewing. First, let's just appreciate the labor that went into this one time production beer. Next, imagine those flavors.

Lastly - go out into some snow, maybe snowboard, ski or go for a slay ride, and appreciate that the biggest mistake made by the Sixpoint brewery was releasing such a wintery porter in the middle of summer when it could not be appreciated for the atmosphere that it provides.
