4.19/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

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.

Stoic dark beer from Belgium brewed by a very notorious Dane, big black body dark tan head, beautiful looking brew. Aromatics offer up Christmas trees pine needles, and resin of earthy hops, other than that maybe some cinnamon/ginger spice additions. There's some herbal aspect to it like mint or wintergreen that I just can't quit taking deep inhalations of, very nice nose on it. Flavor dark roasted malts mixed with the wintergreen herbal mint flavor and dank pine needles perhaps some juniper it's an intensely bitter finish in this dark chocolate infused spiced porter. Not much sweetness or creamy notes to let the bitterness back off plus the layer of spices pretty much just stick to the palate, moderate carbonation nothing else to write home about. Overall an interesting take an a rustic porter with possible pine needles. and juniper berries.
