500ml split with Kevin. Label states that it's brewed with rye and fennel seed.

A - Dark brown body, nearly black but some clarity is noticeable. Nice fluffy cloud of beige head retains great at about a half-finger, nice lace too.

S - Good amount of roast, definitely getting a dark bread vibe there as well. Chocolate, licorice, spices. Some nutty and coffee tones along with some hoppiness. A touch on the tame side but pretty nice.

T - More chocolate/sweetness forward, though still a decent amount of roast and some smokiness there as well. Less so than the nose, it doesn't really scream 'pumpernickel' to me, but the fennel seed/licorice is definitely there along with some other various spices. Still some hop action there as well (grass/pine).

M - Somewhat high carbonation for the style, bitterness makes this somewhat of a sipper, body is fine overall. Flavors are intense enough to maybe mistake this for an imperial stout, but the feel itself retains its porter-ness.

O - While I'm not sure it exactly delivers as a pumpernickel beer, it is still a solid porter-leaning-towards-stout, the fennel and spice elements add a unique touch.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours pitch black with a healthy, fine, two finger brown head with great retention and lots of lacing. Good aroma of dark toasted malt, chocolate and a touch of spicy rye. Flavor is smooth milk and dark chocolate, toasted malt with a hint of char, mild toffee. Finishes with very mellow blended dark malt, chocolate, char and light hop bitterness. Nice medium creamy body. Wow, a beautifully balanced and well integrated porter. The malts are some variety of chocolate malt that is great. Deceptively smooth and mellow mannered, but with interesting additional light flavors of char and light rye spiciness. Really nice. Stumbled on this on a trip and hope to find another bottle.
