12 ounce can poured into a DFH signature glass. Winter beer in August

A: dark cola looking with a creamy head

S: Carmel, chocolate, faint booze, toffee

T: starts with the toffee and Carmel, finishes with s lot of bitter chocolate, some hop bitterness in there too

M: extremely creamy! Not too the point of chewy, but it's like a glass of whole milk with Hershey syrup

The bitter chocolate makes this beer so good! It has a good complexity and its a unique experience

a: served in a shaker pint, deep opaque brown in color, topped with a light mocha head that retains well

s: roasted barleys, chocolate, hops earthy, a simple but well-structured aroma

m: carbonation on the higher side of the light range, medium-full body

t: fairly simple, featuring smooth medium-dark roast barley, some semisweet chocolate sugars, earthy hops, hitting some porter notes

o: an easy drinking, roasty winter warmer, fairly standard but a good flavor set that hints at the porter style

12oz can picked up during a recent tour of the brewery, poured into a tulip. An aggressive pour yields a pretty minimal head that dissipates quickly to a thin film and a ring of foam. Color is dark root beer brown, no light gets through the glass.

Aroma is sweet, malty, with notes of dried dark fruits. A nice spicy smokiness I can't quite identify.

Taste is roasty w/ chocolate & caramel malts and a nice crisp hoppy bite on the finish. Some spices linger on the palate. Maybe a little smokiness here too.

Mouthfeel is coating, medium bodied, finishes bitter. Lingering aftertaste.

Overall, a solid winter warmer that I could see enjoying w/ a big cheeseburger or maybe a pot roast.
