I've been wanting this brew for a very long time, since 2011. Let's get down to the brew. This puppy pours a nice dark brown body almost on the verge of being black. With very dark brown hues gleaming the outskirts of my tulip glass. Nice creamy mocha head made up with tiny bubbles. Looks fantastic! The aroma is just a dense chocolate bar feeling. Nice baked cookie dough in the backend. Not picking up any oak, but this beer smells Amazing! The flavor is just as amazing. Chocolate and roast with some cookie dough sweetness. This brew finishes on time smooth/sweet and slight bitterness with a touch of toasted oak. Simply amazing. This brew has medium volume in the body with par carbonation.

Overall: Move over Sugar! Daddy's got a sweet tooth tonight! This brew is delicious beyond belief. This really reminds me of Imperial Biscotti Break, with more delicious chocolate. Smooth and sweet like some milk chocolate. This is packing some flavor for sure. It was a bit pricey, but worth it to me! This brew is recommended.

White waxed 22oz bottle, poured into a teku glass, 2013 vintage

A- pours a deep but not quite opaque black color with a small creamy khaki colored head that retains into a film on top, leaving some short lasting lace behind

S- first impression on the aroma is of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Beyond that, layers of whipped cream, coconut, dark cherry, booze soaked toasted oak, vanilla, burnt toffee & a hint of coffee and chocolate to close it out

T- deep layers of chocolate complexity up front mix with notes of caramel malt, malted milk balls & heavy vanilla cream. Hints of herbal hop and booze soaked black cherry. The oak presence isn't notched until the finish, but adds nice nutty & earthy notes in the close

M- medium body with moderate-light carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, highly drinkable

O- a very approachable, yet complex porter. Chocolate takes center stage, with underlying oak that adds good contrast to the chocolate sweetness, very good

22oz bottle. Pours a dark brownish black with an inch plus of frothy light brown head. Some lacing. The aroma is very sweet. Milk chocolate, oak, vanilla, caramel, and slightly nutty. The taste is thick chocolate syrup and oak at first. Notes of vanilla and caramel with some more nuttiness. A bit roasty. Almost too sweet at times but the oak helps mellow it out a little. Still, a slow sipper due to the sweetness. Lots of carbonation with a velvety mouthfeel. Overall, borders on sicky sweet, but a solid brew nonetheless.

App- 4.25 a- 4.25 t- 3.75 m-3.5 o-4 = 3.9
