Pours thick brown with a creamy fat head of chocolate colored foam that is too lazy to fall. Soft nose with dark chocolate and a brief whiff of mint. Rich dark creamy milky chocolate, some hop araoma and roasted malt. Bread. Smells like a milkshake. Taste is dry roasted malt, coffee, the sweetness of the chocolate and a bit of cream. Full creamy mouthfeel. Slight bitterness on a dry finish. Something brown and leafy in there and a bit of herbal. Rich and smooth. It's beer cocoa.

Great name great brewery and pours a luscious pitch black hue with a three finger chocolate laced head and lacing everywhere and yeah it's a looker alright,the smell dark chocolate mixed with a rich smokiness just like a fresh cigar along with a slight herbalness,the mouthfeel is light bodied yet lush and creamy and the tastes are a beautiful combination of sweet and bitter with an ever present smokiness that really keeps it all in check and overall I'm sold with this one and honestly as it says close to perfection porter is not far off the mark cheers.

Bottle poured into glass
This porter is as dark and black as oil. Pours a thick billowy brown head. Great lacings
Aroma of roasted malts,more sweet chocolate than coffee, whiff of alcohol.
Alcohol on the front of the tongue, smooth roasted malts, more coffee than chocolate on the taste, slight bitterness on the back of the tongue, slight bitter after taste. Full mouthfeel.
It's good but the alcohol detracts from the flavor.
