Bottled 3/27/14.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, and chocolate syrup aromas. Taste is much the same with char and burnt cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of nice roast and char qualities all around.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a dark mahogany brown with ruby tones and a fine one finger light brown head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of toasted malt with a hint of char, milk chocolate. Flavor follows with dark malt, chocolate and a bit of lactose. Finishes malty with a hint of light fruit and a light grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light, smooth creaminess. A nice porter with good mouth feel and flavorful toasted malt and slight bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and pleasant. I will get this again.

Pours a finger and half of rounded head on a black body. Looks amazing.
The aroma is coffee with roasted malt.
The taste is dark chocolate, coffee, roasted and burnt malt in the best blend.
The texture is super smooth with low carbonation.
Excellent.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: dark brown with ruby highlights; body is haze-free and shows a strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy tan foam with a nice lacing left on the glass. Reminds me more of an English porter in color, but it's still a damn fine looking beer.

Smell: sweet and roasty with a nice chocolate character. Not overly complex, but alluring.

Taste: roasty and chocolatey up front with an abundance of vegetal hop character. There's some nice caramel and toffee in there, as well, but the vegetal hops and roasty elements really fight each other.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a very satisfying creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this beer has its strong points, but I feel like the flavors don't harmonize well.
