I was recently on a vacation with my wife and her family visiting some of her extended family in Virginia and there was a Wegman's located close to the hotel we were staying at so I went in there and grabbed some singles of beers from breweries that I have never seen in Cleveland before (or anywhere else that comes to mind for that matter). This is one of the ones I grabbed and is in fact that last bottle from this batch of beers I brought back home with me from that recent trip. Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a very dark brown color that is not interested in any light. Has a nice tan head that is about 1/2 or so of an inch thick when first poured that settles to a nice thick ring lining the inside of the glass and a nice crescent shaped cluster of a surface film layer of foam. Needs more lacing. Aromas of malty caramel sweetness, some chocolate, and nice hints of roasted coffee, slight hints of dark fruit such as raisin or plum, and a bit of earthy hops. Tastewise this baby has a caramel malty sweetness upfront followed by hints of chocolate

Bottle that was a fun trade extra. Thanks, Iamjeff6!

Ap - Very deep brown with an almost red hue around the edges. There was a quickly fading mocha head, that settles to a minimal ring. No lacing is detected.

Ar - Vanilla cola. There's a hint of roast and chocolate. But I smell a malty version of a famous vanilla cola..

T - It doesn't taste like the nose would have you believe. It's more muddled, and a little more bitter chocolates. The cola aroma is nowhere in the taste. A touch of vanilla finds its way towards the middle-end. This is a tasty treat, but nothing to call home about.

M - A little dry, bordering the light to medium body. I wish it had that classic porter "sourness" mid-palate, and maybe a bit thicker body.
