2012 vintage. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a 8 oz snifter.
A- Pours black with a 1 finger mocha head. Big trails and small blotches of lacing remain on the glass.
S- chocolate with very nice coffee aroma and some vanilla.
T- chocolate, roasted malts, big coffee blast with the vanilla shortly behind, with some bitter roast at the finish.
M- medium body and carbonation. Very smooth and lighter but in a good way. No clue this was/is 10%
O- great porter. Coffee and vanilla really make this beer and drinks very well for a 10% beer.
Serving type: bottle

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!
