Been wanting to try this one for a long time.

Served in an Olde Hickory glass.

A: Poured out a burnt caramel, brown color, much more translucent that I was expecting and with quite a big head for a barrel-aged beer.

S: Tootsie Roll in a glass. Seriously, this has a chocolatey, chewy olfactory quality to it. No barrel-aging detected... yet.

T: If the bottle weren't labelled and someone poured this for me sight-unseen, I would have thought this was Souther Tier's "Choklat (without the weird aftertaste)." Huge cocoa nib/truffle flair with the oak only evident under VERY close inspection (perhaps on the finish?).

M: Thick and gooey, like any dessert beer should be. This brew is absolutely the perfect ABV and sweetness level for the dessert brew that it is.

O: This was $16.95 and I thought it was worth every penny.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a black with some brown edges around the edges. Head is nice fluffy two fingered khaki head that falls slow and laces well.

Aroma is rich chocolate, light coffee notes, some good fruity notes and hints of vanilla. Rich full smelling brew even some alcohol spiciness underneath it all.

Taste is like the nose nice roasted chocolate notes, good sweetness at the first. Some coffee when the carbonation picks up some in the middle lightly dry dark fruit notes appear along with the vanilla. Finish is chocolate , coffee, vanilla along with some hops bitterness and caramel sweetness.

Mouthfeel is nice big medium its smooth to start, with some pep for the finish.

Overall a very tasty porter but truth be told I bought it by accident if I saw the correct price I would of not purchased it. That said it is very good and if you have the spare funds worth purchasing I guess, I am just little on the poor side.
