22oz. poured into a Imperial pint glass
A: Deep brown-black with a super thick cream head. No lacing apparent but really good retention through out the 45 mins it took me to kill this bomber.
S: Roasted malt, slightly sweet, hints of mint, semi sweet chocolate, and coffee. Smells like a solid porter.
T: Toasted malt, floral notes, honey, mint, green apple, agave, and something like pollen in honey. A little medicinal on the finish that keeps it from being great.
M: Really lives up to its name here. Creamy and soft on the palate. Like laying your tongue on a cloud or a pillow. Goes down like silk and coats the mouth.
O: Pretty good. A little strange but in a good way. Everything on this was great except for that medicine tang i got on the finish. Definitely worth trying and i prefer it over their regular porter but not legendary like some of their other collaborations.

A- Pours a nice inky black, with noticeable bubbles up the sides. Decent head, light lacing on the sides and a light coating over the top 10m later.
S- Very soft at this point, roasted malts, dark chocolates, I cant smell much flowers/jasmine/honey in the glass, but Im defiantly picking it up from the bottle, everything smells pretty good.
T- The roasted malts and chocolates up front as a porter should be, next you get the sweeter side probably the honey and finishes with a slightly bitter dry feeling. Again pretty good.
M- medium to full body, has a decent thick, chewy feeling while still retaining a slippery smoothness over the tongue.
O- When I first opend it I had a hard time picking up the smell, maybe cause its been cellaring since I got it last year. After it aired out some, everything came togather nicely. The carbonation wasn't noticeable while drinking. They did a really good job with this, glad i have 3 more downstairs.
