Poured into a St. Somewhere style wine glass. Label says Bottled 1/31/13.

A-Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains decently before slowly whittling down to a .

S- Sugary sweet caramel/mocha/vanilla aroma with some hazelnut. Actually kind of smells like Frangelico. Semi-resilient lacing slides down the glass leaving clots behind.

T- Coffee is more pronounced in the flavor with some dark roast to round out the vanilla/caramel/milk chocolate sweetness. It's sort of like a mocha milkshake. All of these characteristics sort of point toward an artificiality but it stays balanced well enough especially with the alcohol being so high.

M- Sticky, almost syrupy. Not as robust of a body as I was hoping and medium carbonation.

O- A decent coffee beer although the coffee takes a back seat to all the chocolate and vanilla notes. Definitely on the sweet side. Diabetus alert.

22 oz. bottle served in a snifter. Pours a black color with a good, frothy brown head, good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, a little bit of coffee, raisins, and licorice. Flavor is oddly tart, cocoa, coffee, spicy, alcohol, wood, and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is medium-to-full bodied, creamy, and a slightly bitter finish. Pretty good beer but a weird tart/sour flavor.

Near black, good initial head, nice retention, some lacing.

Big coffee smell, quite roasty

Coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, dark chocolate, nicely blended together.

Creamy smooth mouthfeel.

I was quite impressed with this, one of the nicest porters I've had in a long while.
