4.25/5 rDev +1.7%
Regal gold foil covered cap on a 550ml bottle.
A: Pours dark brown with crimson highlights under a solid one-finger thick tan head. Very fine carbonation. Eventually fades to a thin cap and leaves spots of lace.
N: Roast is prominent followed by dark chocolate cream, marshmallows, vanilla, caramel, faint vanilla, dark fruits (raisins, figs, dates, etc.), and bacon. Mmm bacon.
T: Follows nose with a complex array of roast, grainy malts.
M: Full body and medium carbonation. Mellow roast, smooth and creamy finish.
O: Wow - for the style this is amazing. Top notch.

4.29/5 rDev +2.6%
Undated bottle at 45 degrees into lager glass (restaurant)
Aroma of malt
Head average (3 cm), light brown, creamy, diminishing to 2 mm ring and layer
Lacing poor – few very small islands of small bubbles
Body dark brown, clear
Flavor very slightly bitter with a toffee/coffee flavor. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation
A pretty darn good porter, easy to drink, not cloying.
