A: Pours an opaque but clear extremely dark brown in color (almost black) with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some dark amber highlights . The beer has a half finger tall light tan head that slowly reduces to a mottled very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate, burnt coffee, vanilla, and oak.
T: Upfront there are some light to moderate flavors of dark roasted malts with some light to moderate notes of dark chocolate and burnt coffee. Very light hints of vanilla and oak. Just a hint of licorice and light to moderate amounts of bitterness which lingers slightly.
M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: There is a good amount of complexity. Well balanced, no single flavor really dominates and quite smooth. An excellent sipping beer and the alcohol is well hidden - I could really see this one sneaking up on me.
Serving type: growler

Bottled Oct. 24, 2013
A - Pours very black for a porter and has a tan two finger head with great retention/lacing. One of the best looking porters I've seen in a while.
S - Has an aroma of bittersweet chocolate powder, milk lactose, brewed coffee, roasted malts and light vanilla. There's not a huge barrel presence on the nose, but the other aromas are very enticing.
T - Bittersweet milk chocolate at first, coffee and lactic acid begin the journey. Midway it's all roasted malts and at the end there is light barrel notes along with vanilla and brown sugar.
M - Light to medium bodied with medium fizzy carbonation. It's a very smooth bodied beer with a wet finish.
O - It's a well done beer. The base beer shines through all while letting the barrel treatment come forth, but not take over completely.

Served on tap at Morris Tap and Grill in NJ. 1/18
Pours dark black, light tan foam. Top layer. Creamy chocolate and vanilla nose. Coffee too. Smooth creamy layered taste. Very even. Modest, if any, bitter. Subtle bourbon taste at the close. Alcohol picks up steam. Light cream. Good.
Serving type: on-tap
