Pours a dark cola color with a creamy deep beige head atop.Aromas of chocolate and brown sugar,not overly sweet but appetizing.A great feel it's full and creamy wich makes it too easy to drink for the size of the beer.Chocolate and brown sugar flavors but it never gets too sweet to drink,a rich full flavored "big" porter.

Poured into a pint glass. Bottle.

3.75 A: Black color. Two fingers of fizzy light brown head. Retention starts our poor but the last half finger stuck around for quite a while. A short ring of lacing is left.

4.25 S: Really nice aroma on this. This definitely has a nice caramel and brown sugar component to it. I'm not really sure how much of this is due to the rapadou and how much if from the base beer, but I'm guessing quite a bit. Roasted barley, cocoa, and a slight molasses component.

4.5 T: Taste is just as good as the nose. Thick, creamy malty sweetness. Again layers of caramel. Brown sugar, roasted barley, chocolate, molasses. Desert beer sweetness without being at all cloying. Quite nice.

4.5 M: Heavy body. Creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Good moderate carbonation. Supremely smooth and not overly chewy.

4.5 D: Really tasty beer. Probably the best beer I've had from Alewerks.

Bottle as part of a fantasy baseball winnings. Thanks. Pours black with a one finger creamy khaki brown head. Very nice aroma of sweet chocolate and sugar, molasses, caramel, anise, some dark fruit. Flavor is sweet molasses, roast, some chocolate and toffee, brown sugar, lightly bitter roast bite to finish. Medium to thick bodied with medium high carbonation and a dry finish. Wow. This is a really good porter and I suspect it would work nicely with some barrels, too.

Real nice. Lots of chocolate and coffee; and the coffee notes are real rich and almost dry - Raul feels like he is in the jungle picking the beans himself. This thang is roasty like you are on a camping trip trying to earn your Eagle badge. What's great is that it isn't thin and over-carbonated (I'm looking at you, Sump.)

Good beer.

Pitch black in color with only an extremely thin ring of ruby around the base of my glass. Tan 2 1/2 finger head that dissipates rather rapidly giving a very yeasty appearance as it goes, but leaving no lacing.

Coffee, molasses, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and brown sugar on the nose. A bit of dark yeasty bread as well.

Taste is even more fruity than the nose. Dark fruit and brown sugar again, with dark roast coffee to match. A bit tart, with a strong but not harsh bitter quality that carries through to the end.

Full in body with decent carbonation for the style. Syrupy and a bit drying. Spicy warming alcohol in the throat.

A superb offering from Williamsburg Alewerks. Probably the best beer of theirs I've yet sampled. Great aroma plus full flavor with plenty of warmth for this cool October evening or a midwinter's night for that matter.
