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.

One of the best porters I have ever had. Looks great. Dark and rich with tan head. Smells chocolatety and taste of coffee and dark chocholate. The mouthful is the same as the taste. Not the best tasting, but it is very smooth for a crisp flavor if you like both chocolate and coffee. Could drink several of these beers as it smooth and creamy.
