This is a porter for those that love the dark side of brewing. An obsidian body absorbs light like a black hole, but perched on top is a generous brown frothy head that lingers for awhile before it reduces to a nice thick collar on the inside of the glass. The smell alerts you to the alcohol hidden in the murky depths of this porter, with a nice rounded aroma of hops and roasted chocolates. The taste is sublime: rich with roasted malts, a sweet finish and well-balanced hop bitterness. The beer has some heft as well, making it a perfect porter for a long lingering drinking session once the weather turns chilly.

This exotic treat pours a dark, hearty red with a heroic, creamy tan head that sticks around till the bitter (and I do mean bitter) end. Smells of burnt toasty malts and dark coffee, followed by caramel sweetness and finally a creamy/bitter finish. The taste is certainly complex and lives up to this beer's moniker. Tall bitterness and roasty flavors hit first before mellowing out into a distinctive sweet creaminess that cooperates with a serious dose of tasty hops for a taste that lingers long. The mouthfeel is chewy and, in my estimation, perfect for a porter. What carbonation there is adds a nice dimension. The drinkability is fantastic, but this is certainly an indulgence for me. If any beer can be called "breakfast beer", this is the one.
