From notes at Old Chicago (2002): Poured from bottle into english pint. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with light brown head that lingers. Aroma of dark fruits, plum, fig, roasted malt, slight coffee / licorice type aroma. Taste is roast and barley, with dark fruits, and some candied apple. I feel like it is hard to characterize this one with normal beer vocabulary. It's an excellent porter, which distinguishes itself from others with a unique, rich, and complex aroma / flavor. Smooth, slightly silky mouth feel.
