4.48/5 rDev +4.9%
from a bottle bought at Star Grocery on Claremont on the Oakland/Berkeley border.
A: pours a deep brown, some scattered lacing
S: big chocolate odors up front
T: really incredibly nice, delicious chocolate flavor, which it nails as well as any chocolate beer I've had.
M: good medium-plus body, getting towards 'creamy'. The barrel aging hasn't left it overly thick or syrupy - not that that would necessarily be a bad thing.
O: outstanding porter, one of my absolute favorites. One of the best of the category I'd call "dessert beers".

4.21/5 rDev -1.4%
650ml bottle, white wax, poured into an unlabeled snifter 6/18/2014.
A- Dark cola brown body, one finger offwhite head with good retention that drops into a thick collar. Good lacing.
S- Licorice, milk chocolate, a bit of roast malt. A slight wet, damp oak scent. Some lactose. Vanilla.
F- Milk chocolate sweetness, lactose mixed in with dark chocolate and roast malts. Oak is definitely there and adds some complexity along with vanilla.
M- Medium bodied, on the thinner side with decent enough carbonation. A bit bitter, but that is offset by some lactose.
O- A pretty darn good chocolate imperial porter with a nice nose. Don't know if there's any actual lactose, but I'd believe it. Pretty expensive though I believe; glad I received this one as an extra.
