My next keg, good but not awe inspiring. I'm still comparing everything to Edmund Fitzgerald and they are losing. This is clearly a good beer, dark and complex and coffee and intrigue, but I'm left wanting and it is hard to describe why. Slighly shallow.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours an almost pitch black color with a massive head that indicates problems to come, I fear; good retention, however

Smell: Chocolate, with coffee undertones

Taste: Brown bread and chocolate, with sweetened coffee undertones from start to finish

Mouthfeel: The beer has a watery character, with a lot of fizziness, particularly up front

Overall: Not sure how fresh this bottle is, though I bought it in the late Fall; the beer is not listed on their website, so it may well be retired; not up to the usual standards I expect from this brewery

22 oz. bomber.

A - Pours black with dark brown edges. Dense tan head forms a thick film and leaves descent lacing behind.

S - Roasted marshmallows, coffee, milk chocolate, woody, toasted nuts, molasses, dark fruit, sour dough bread.

T - Sweet roasted malt with dry cocoa underneath. The malt has more of an earthy grain to it than the aroma. Once warmed some dark fruit and sour dough emerges. Finishes dry with and earthy bite at the end.

M - Medium body starts out good but turns thin on the finish.

It packs in alot of flavor for 5.50 ABV. A nice porter with some character.

A deep brown colored beer which pours with very little head, but what foaminess is there is nicely structured. Some spotty lacing. Aroma has a butterscotch upfront smell with some roasted malts and coffee. On the paleete the taste is weak and washed out. There are hints of roasted malts but really are quite light. Mouthfeel as stated is thin and watery. This beer needs alittle help, whether its a bad bottle I don't know. A metallic taste slso dominates this beer both in nose and pallette. I'll mark to try at a latter date.
