Bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury, VT.

Pours a very dark brown, with a half inch head, and little bit of lacing- not a whole lot.

Smells pretty nice- chocolate, a little bit of dark fruit, vanilla cream, and roasted malt.

This tastes amazing, a bit like an Irish dry stout meets an English porter. A wisp of smoke flavor, baker's chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts and roasted coffee, raisins. It's all subtle, and doesn't bash you over the head, but it's all there. Great flavor for only 5.5% ABV.

This one has a really creamy, amazing mouthfeel, with a lower amount of carbonation, and a body of medium thickness.

An absolutely delicious English porter. The high ratings are absolutely justified- it should honestly be rated higher and talked about more. Find this if you can, and drink a ton of it.

The aroma has strong chocolate and medium porter roasted malt.

The flavor follows with cocoa, milk chocolate, light roasted coffee, a milk sweetness with a bright yeasty note on the back end.

The beer packs wonderful flavor and mouthfeel for a lower ABV brew.
