Pours a black body with a thin milk chocolate head. Lacing is pretty good and head retention is above average.

Smells of roasted chocolate malts and slight metal. Also getting some smoked malt with bakers chocolate. Not much hops or alcohol is detected.

Taste is of a classic rich porter. Lots of sweet malt paired with burnt malts also. Bits of chocolate and coffee are in the mix. Very slight alcohol detected, not much hops.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Head added slightly is consistency.

Overall this was a solid beer. No flaws to it but also nothing outstanding about it. This beer was on my want list for years, glad I got to try it, another tasty beer from Thirsty Dog.

12 ounce bottle split unevenly between two little plastic hotel cups. No visible codes or dates.

Pours black with a small beige head. Small amount of fine carbonation. Smell is yeasty, bready, overripe dark fruit, cherries.

Taste is surprisingly mild. Very slight coffee or chocolate, a medium fruity bitter.

Mouthfeel is a little overcarbonated, but light. Overall, it's fairly good.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear very dark reddish brown approaching black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some garnet red + dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy tan head that reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts with a light aroma of Nestle Quik syrup.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted malts as well as chocolate malts, though there is little to no sweetness associated with the flavor of this beer. Hints of earthy hops which contribute a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and very enjoyable, a nice beer for the cold of autumn/winter. Definitely worth grabbing. Alcohol is very well hidden.
