One of the base beers in my recent trade with madnismo, shared one of these tonight with my Tuesday night friends.

2 finger tan head... pretty good retention and okay lacing atop a very dark brown beer that still shows nice ruby highlights at the stem.

Nose is an enticing mix of cocoa, coffee and hints of oaky vanilla.. dark caramel sugary essence helps carry and marry the aromas.

Bigger vanilla bloom on the palate that doesn't show in the nose... plenty of cocoa, coffee is lesser than the nose... dark roasty malts also don't show as much as expected... a sorta nutty malt moves in with the vanilla/caramel mash-up and produces an easy drinking brew.

Body is surprisingly light given the 10%... good carbonation, but still thick and coating... very drinkable... deceiving.

Thanks again Nathan for the great trade.

All 3.75's

Tried this 4/1/14, so my review my be a lot lower than most.

A: beautiful dark brown, with nice 2 finger tan head
S: nice sweetness, tabacco smell, not getting the coffee nor chocolate that most people describe
T: taste like it smells, no coffee, very little chocolate, solid porter, little boozy
MF: great part of this beer! great carb, nice and light on the tounge
O: A pretty solid beer. doesnt taste or drink like 10%, but it is really good. I am sure it was better fresh with the huge coffee arome and flavor people describe. Would have liked to get this fresh, but what can you do. very solid though!
