Nice porter of a dark color with some purple on it. Unfortunately, it doesn't make a good foam.
Nice smell, full of coffe and some dark chocolate.
Taste is similar, with some roasted malts. it begins with the chocolate and then comes a bitter taste with coffe notes.
Mouthfeel is the awesome thing here; it's like a liquor and it's delightful. Not much in the body or carbonation, but nevertheless mouthfell is perfect.
Another thing I shoud say is, except for the smell, there are some resemblances with wine, quite interesting.

This beer is dirty. The nice and nasty kinda dirty! When poured into a glass I was unable to see any light pass through, even holding it up to the sun. Strong dark smell, strong dark taste. Think dark chocolate with dark burnt coffee with an earthy feel. My wife bought me three 6 packs (18 beers) and I went through them in about a week. My liver hurts... Hurts sooo good!
