Imbibed at Harry's Hofbrau on 5/31/12. Reviewed from notes.
Sits nearly pitch black with a brown tinge in the glass. Very little tan head circles the glass. Some anise aroma with chocolatey backbone and a little bit of vanilla. This smells barrel aged to my amateur nose. No alcohol bite nixes the BA suspicion. A good, deep breath yields some dark roast coffee aroma. Bitter and sweet flavors greet the taste buds. I can tell there's not much lactic sugar, if any, but the smooth texture suggests it. Anise again, then vanilla bean and milk chocolate. Some coffee oil lingers on the tongue. A little watery overall, but taste is substantial. The flavors don't slip off the tongue like the beer does. Dry finish.
I feel that despite my disdain for the porter style, I like this beer. Due to my wife's love of the porter, I've had more than my fill of them in the last couple years. Again, despite this, I feel like I would order this again... if the price wasn't so prohibitive. The ABV is very deceptive, so I'm sure my palate psyched out my perceptions a bit. Good beer overall, not great.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop. Black in color with nice dark chocolaty colored head. Head dissipated fairly quickly into a thin collar. Aroma is of hazelnut and a little bit of chestnut as well. Dark roasted malt and some sweet molasses too. Taste is nice and nutty as well. Sweet for a stout without being overly sweet. Nice molasses flavor along with the nuttiness. Silty mouthfeel and low carbonation.
