Pours like a porter with deep dark chocolate color and it's creamy deep beige head,some deep ruby is shown thru when held to the light.Roasted and warming in the nose along with fruity esters and chocolate notes,again alot like a porter.Big roastiness on the palate along with earthy tones,bitter chocolate along with mild fruitiness and sweet alcohol in the finish,I don't get any spice really.To me this is a bigger porter all the way,and a good one.A nice change of pace from the sweet spiced winter warmers.

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
