A: Black, soft head. Poured 1 finger settled to top of the glass. Looks like a brand new black car.. Can see the reflection of the glass perfectly off the black background.
S: Vanilla and Coffee together. Chocolate following. A stronger espresso hit than vanilla but still balances out.
T: Espresso, Vanilla, Small hit of the ABV. A small Initial aftertaste of roasted espresso beans. Small tastes of Chocolate. Noticeably enough The vanilla pairs well with the espresso.
M: Really Smooth, Mild Carbonation, ABV kicks, Coffee (in a good way) filling the mouth.
O: Very Good Porter.. I would recommend stout lovers or even non dark beer lovers to try this.. Its a good good beer.

This poured the color of midnight at a bottom of a well, with an espresso-crema cap of foam.
The aroma held layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malts, a hint of vanilla. It’s a sipper, with a smoothly warming flavor of a sweetly bitter espresso with cacao and vanilla, and just a touch of booziness at the end. This is a big beer but so enjoyable!
