look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured reddish black opaque with mohagany hue. Thick soapy head that quickly dissapated, leaving slight tan skiff and foamy ring, Very slight oil slick on surface and moderate cabonation. Nice color, but would like to see creamier head that sustained.

Aroma: Faint coffee-like roast. No hops. Banana notes and a bit of chalk. Needs more.

Taste: Toffee, molasses and coffee bitterness. Slightly astringent and dry.

Mouthfeel: Dry and moderately thin. A bit of carbonation tingle.

Overall: Pretty non-descript for the style, but smooth and drinkable with good coffee character. The kind of dark ale that you can quaff on a hot day because the its relatively dry and the coffee is relatively mild.

Serving type: bottle

The first few sips were amazing - lots of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. But as the beer started to warm up, these flavors became less prominent. Maybe it's because my palate became overwhelmed or the flavor just changes as it warms up. Anyways, still very tasty.

4.34/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Has a nice nearly black body with a think dark one inch head.

Smell: I could not get my nose out of this beer as it had a profound chocolate smell that was both sweet and dark at the same time.

Taste: The taste was a lot like the smell. Sweet chocolate upfront that turns into a bitter dark chocolate/roasted coffee taste.

Mouthfeel: This was smooth but bitter and leaves a dry taste making you want another sip.

Overall: Overall a delicious porter that stands true to its name with a chocolatey and decadent body that finishes with a black roasted coffee taste.

Serving type: growler
