4.21/5 rDev +3.4%
Pours beautifully with tons of lasting lace.
Smells rich, cocoa, burnt malt, slight plum.
Tastes like one hell of a smoked porter. Burnt chocolate, coffee, dry hops! Goes down smooth, with a nice, moderate thickness.
I really, really enjoyed this one! I'd recommend pretty highly.

The beer comes in a dark black/brown.
The aroma has roasted malt, chocolate.
The flavor follows with a robust roasted malt, tons of roasty coffee. Coffee bitterness, earthiness, burnt malt on the end. A very robust beer with a good bitterness. Tons of coffee flavor.
A really well done porter.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy super dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, unsweetened cocoa powder, and coffee bean aromas. Taste is much the same with dark cocoa, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice aroma but some fairly intense roast and hop flavors.

Pours dark black with massive frothy, dark, tanned head.
Smell is banana esters, roast, cardboard. Almost a few band-aids.
Taste is a nice roasty maltiness with banana lurking behind. Coffee grinds in the finish in a substantial way.
Mouthfeel features all that estery banana. Then coffee and dark chocolate. Nice roasty, hoppy finish.
Overall an an enjoyable but banana-y porter.

Pours a mostly opaque dark brown, one finger thick light brown foam, lots of spots of lace left on the glass. Smell: roasty, molasses, earth and licorice. Taste: roast, dark chocolate, citrus peel, caramel, earth and anise notes. Creamy, nice carbonation, mild alcohol hit.
