Poured from a bomber into a Fremont goblet on 05.21.14.

A: Midnight black with some red at the bottom. No head, but has a tan ring at the top.

S: Coffee, vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel. Sweet smelling.

T: Black coffee is dominant. Char is subtle.

M: Watery and overly carbonated. There was a big fizz when pouring, like soda.

O: This was a rare miss for Fremont. It tasted good, but only like coffee. There was no vanilla or coconut as the label read. It was also way too bubbly and watery for a porter. Knowing Fremont and from what other reviewers have written, I wonder about the bottle that I got.

22oz bottle at 41 F split into a pair of chalices. 174 M 0237 201 is the bottle code.

Pours black, with a small head. Head fades slowly. It's opaque, but evidently there is some active carbonation. Smell is very portery. Perhaps even imperially so. Aside from obvious roastiness, there's clearly vanilla and coffee.

Taste is dark fruit, lots of bitter coffee flavor, more dark fruit, lots of roast bitterness.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly light, though not thin. Overall, it's pretty good.
