4.7/5 rDev +14.6%
Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a solid, dark brown color with chestnut highlights and a frothy, foamy, dark beige head. Slow stream of carbonation bubbles throughout the brew. The nose is rich and creamy sweet, with a blend of coffee, biscuit, vanilla, cream, and an overall roasted quality. Flavors are amazing, with milk chocolate and rum characteristics first and foremost. Coffee mocha and creamy background flavors enhance the palate. Light cling on the glass from a smooth, creamy body. The aftertaste is roast coffee and chocolate, with a smooth, velvety finish that kicks a slight bitter coffee to clean it all up. One of the better Porters I have ever had!

Review taken from notes courtesy of Stout Fest at the Armsby Abbey.
A - Poured an oily black with a nice one finger mocha head that leaves ALOT of thick, sticky side lacing and a great thin blanket. Very well done.
S - Huge amounts of roasty nut (almond), big coffee, TONS of vanilla, and some sweet caramel. Nice malt presence as well.
T - Boom, just like the nose this delivers on the flavour. Loads of sweet chocolate cookies, roasty almonds, sweet caramel, vanilla, and bakers chocolate. Tastes like a chocolate biscotti!
M - Velvety creme and silk. No ABV noticeable at all.
O - Overall this is a spectacular beer and was my favourite of the weekend. Smooth and silky with an awesome aroma and flavour profile. Just delicious.

THIS is a great beer. Looked like candy sitting in the snifter on the beer bar at the DeCicco's in Brewster, NY. Gorgeous brown head floating on a black sea of goodness. Smell was complex with everything a good porter should have....and more. Coffee, vanilla, chocolate, smokiness, sweetness, booze...damn. Taste followed nose, and the smoothness was outstanding. Booze at 7.5 is not heavy, but what is there is fairly well hidden. Nice chewiness on the mouth feel, but not overdone. I would have bought a growler for an upcoming holiday party, but at $35 a pop, I decided the masses would not appreciate it enough.
