22 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic! Lots of chocolate, roasted malt, brown sugar, molasses and vanilla. Very pleasant aromas.

Taste: Wow! Very tasty! Tons of roasted malt and chocolate up front, followed by some vanilla, caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness and black pepper. Not much in the way of hops, which is surprising for a beer from the Pacific Northwest.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, creamy, smooth. No carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 8.5%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very, very, good porter! Great flavors of malt and chocolate, all wrapped up into an extremely creamy quaff. Highly recommended.

Smells like tootsie rolls in a glass. Big chocolate notes, touch of vanilla, and some mild wood notes. Flavor is less milk chocolate and more bakers chocolate with some bitterness coming through. Oak quality is there but by no means overwhelming. Good feel...not thick and chewy, but not overly slick either. ABV is well hidden. Just a quality porter that should be enjoyed by anyone that loves chocolate forward beers.

Quite dark brown color with a thick beige head with decent retention.
Aroma with tons of Belgian chocolate predominating over a subdue bourbon. Feels quite natural.
Flavor with notes of bourbon, just right, creamy and dark chocolates and finishing with coffee. Continues with vanilla, cocoa powder, marshmallow and mild oak. Dry and smooth aftertaste.
Medium body with mild carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% abv is completely absent.
Felt to me like a mix of Brown Ale with a Porter. Quite mellow, but still flavorful and impeccable. Can't imagine someone that wouldn't like it, not even who is allergic to chocolates.
