Enjoyed at the brewery and at home in a growler

I took town a 2 oz taster of this and LOVED it; ultimately left with a 64 oz growler; growler was a reasonable $5, fill of this winter season was $12...worth it! Good quarter-plus inch head; again, very dark; companion at the bar says 'dessert beer'; smells exceptionally like caramel and vanilla; great nose overall; heavy on caramel in flavor; despite the flavor and color, this beer isn't overly heavy; repeat sips really brings out the caramel; delicious beer. Not quite dessert, but certainly sweet and yummy, perhaps nonetheless an 'apertif beer'.

Served at the Elk Mountain brewery on draught. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark, non-transparent black. Standard porter fare, I'd say. A tan head of fair retention and lovely cream lacing. So far, so good.

Sm: Caramel, toffee, chocolate. Complex but seemingly balanced.

T: All of the notes on the nose, balanced in favour if the caramel. Some vanilla is also present. It's very well built for the style, maintaining its complexity without losing the necessary prominent notes that give it character. Quite lovely altogether.

Mf: Coarse. Adequately dry for a porter.

Dr: I'd certainly have it again; that said, the price could be a bit lesser.
