Poured in a snifter from the bottle. The burnt-brown color was opaque and inviting. The chocolate and dark cherries on the nose prepared me for the influx of dark cocoa and roasted malt flavor. The beautiful blend and balance made this one shine through, and the creamy mouthfeel didn't disappoint. The finish was even a bit buttery, which I enjoy in a porter or stout. New favorite for sure.

Pours black with tan head in snifter. Very oily appearance.

Smell is dark roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Lots of coffee prescence as well.

Taste follows smell with lots of coffee and dark chocolates. Toffee, caramel and molasses there too. Very complex.

Mouthfeel is thick and oily. Very nice carbonation.

Overall this was excellent. Will be on the lookout for more.

Glass: Nonic pint glass
Opaque black in color with no highlights, two fingers worth of thick rocky brown head.
Sweet molasses in the front of the aroma followed by vanilla, coffee, and alcohol. Slight hint of chocolate syrup, magnificent smelling beer.
Tastes of coffee, chocolate, alcohol, and there is some other warming aside from the alcohol. Some kind of pepper maybe.
Full bodied, thick creamy in texture yet seems to go down really smoothly. A lot of warming in this beer that really lingers in the finish.

4.33/5  rDev +14.9%

Smell - the coffee does not overwhelm, which is a great strength in this beer. There is caramel from the malt and a slight hint of cinnamon.

Appearance - rich dark and thick - almost syrupy (in a good way!), with a slight head.

Mouthfeel - silky smooth with the bitterness of black coffee coming in late on the back of the tongue.

Overall - Very good. Some sips the bitterness of the coffee can be a bit strong, but mostly very well balanced - evening out the sweetness of the heavy grain bill nicely.

S: Fairly strong coffee note, bready chocolate, malty espresso notes

L: Thick, dark black, tan creamy head that dissipates slightly. Ok lacing.

T: Fresh ground coffee up front with a soft milk chocolate that comes next. Medium low roasty bitterness with a fairly strong espresso note following. Some vanilla with milk chocolate notes into the finish. Finishes with espresso like dryness.

M: Medium full body, medium low carbonation. Not too heavy. Alcohol fairly well hidden.

Pretty solid coffee porter, well balanced with subtle, complex flavors.
