4.19/5 rDev +2.4%
A: Pours thick and black with huge chocolate-colored head.
S: Light, coffee and roasted malts with slight hint of spice.
T: A nice balance of coffee, chocolate, and spices that give way to a finish dominated by the hops and malt. The alcohol is hidden well.
M: Medium-bodied, light carbonation. Very smooth.
O: A highly enjoyable, well-balanced porter that goes down easy. Would gladly purchase again.

4.4/5 rDev +7.6%
Look: Huge thick equal brown/mocha head, slow retention. Some spectacular shit. Color of the beer is dark brown/black. Leaves lots of lacing. One of the best looking beers.
Smell: Fresh, surprisingly. Nice balance of roasted, coffee malt, hop and spices. Smooth clove, star anise notes, hints of something stronger; also some medicinal/peppermint notes. When it warms up, the roasted malt start to dominate.
Taste: Some sweetness at start, goes to big roasted/mocha/dark chocolate middle malt, still smooth tho. Ends with bitterness from roasted malt and some hop hints. Quite refreshing. No hint of the alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Mid-full body, maybe a bit less then expected. Carbonation lively, but still leaves a nice creamy feel. No warming from the alcohol.
Overall: This one got me a bit off guard - wasn't expecting it to be this good. A fine specimen. The extra spices add the freshness but stay in balance with the whole idea - a very good execution. And it looks stunning.
