Bottle labeled as "A Dark Mysterious Spellbinding Porter" (exp. 31 May 15).

Pours a tan, one-finger head with moderate retention; leaves considerable lacing. Body is nearly black with garnet highlights. Aroma is largely comprised of caramel, butterscotch; some raisin and dark chocolate also present. Roasted malt flavor takes center stage; additional flavors include overripe fruit, earthy hops, alcohol, minimal sweetness. Body is medium-light with a dry texture and lightly metallic finish; soft carbonation provides a small bite.

Current bottle and official website describe this one as a (robust?) porter. Not bad, though the roasty, nearly acrid quality dominates without much else to round out the flavor.
