Poured from a bomber in to Duvel tulip. Cool looking wax on this bottle.
A- Pours a dark brown with a short light brown head which settles to a thin cap after a minute or two.
S- OH LORD. Quite a bit of chocolate on the nose, but even more graham cracker and cocoa powder.
T- Just a tiny bit of oak here, but I think that is a strong point of this beer. No need to overdo it. Taste is vanilla and a bit of chocolate. A bit of a letdown compared to the nose, but still tasty.
M- Medium feel, not quite full. Medium to high amount of carbonation for the style.
O- A fine brew. The smell hyped me up so much and it didn't quite follow through with the taste unfortunately.

Dedicated to their lost comrade, Mogli- the spirit of the four-legged friend comes as an imperial stout, except for the replacement of roasted elements with something more charming and delightful- chocolate. Its aged bourbon character and bold strength says a lot about Mogli- both the dog and the porter.
Medium brown with a tinge of garnet, the porter lays on the nose and early palate with decadent chocolate, nut and medium coffee character. Its bold burnt toffee sweetness brings out a host of caramel, vanilla and booze-soaked oak.
Its full and sweet body is creamy, given a lift from a malted milk body, heavy whipping cream and vanilla cream. Its nutty and coffee earthiness invites a hint of bittersweetness to balance the malt. Woodsy hops offer a faint aside of toasted pine cone heading into finish.
Remaining lush and full even late, the porter is intent to remain a slow sipping affair, showcasing its warm bourbon-sweet mouthfeel, chocolate linger and malty texture that endures well into the next sip. We'll meet you on the other side Mogli!
