From a 355 ml bottle (bottled June 10, 2013) into a snifter. Reviewed from notes dated September 22, 2013.

A-This brew has one of the darkest heads I have every seen...a sort of walnut brown foam. The head starts out a finger but drops to a collar in about 30 seconds. The beer is black and opaque.

S-The smell is ultra creamy with chocolate and vanilla balancing each other on top of a lactic-like sweetness. There is also some fruit, dark cherries and blueberries, to go along with a big sweet dose of caramel. Bitterness is very low but there is just a hint of roasted coffee in there.

T-The taste is also super creamy and rich to the point of being decadent. I detect bourbon-like vanilla and caramel, milk chocolate, dates, ruby port, soy sauce, and dark cherries. There is very little bitterness and virtually zero hops. The taste is super complex and well-layered.

M-The feel is medium to full body and very creamy. Between the intense flavor and sweetness (and ABV), this brew is a genuine sipper.

O-This is a fantastic beer, albeit one that drinks like meal. The mixture of fruit flavors (like cherry and blueberry), on the one hand, and choco/vanilla/caramel flavors, on the other hand, is really well-done. The mouthfeel also pairs incredibly well with the flavors and makes for a milk-shake-like experience. Alcohol is well-concealed, and the brew sips beautifully. If you don't like big, sweet beers, stay away, but that is OK, because it will leave more for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From 09/22/13 notes. Picked up a 12 oz. bottle of this a few weeks ago in Ardmore, PA at The Beer Shoppe for $3.50. Poured into a snifter. Bottled on 03/21/13.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks like a really nice stout or porter.

s - Smells of roasted malts, milk chocolate, vanilla, light coffee, some toasted malts, and light caramel malts. Nice nose, very roasty and some really nice sweet chocolate to it.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, milk chocolate, burnt malts, vanilla, toasted malts, espresso, bitter dark chocolate, light sugar and caramel, and alcohol. Nice taste that follows the nose, but the alcohol is definitely there too. You can certainly tell this is a big porter.

m - Full body and low carbonation. Very thick and smooth. Some alcohol to it; not a lot considering the ABV, but enough that you can tell this is over 10% ABV.

o - Overall I thought this was a very good, strong porter. It's no where near the Aun Mas Cafe Jesus and Imperial Biscotti Break beers, but another good big porter/stout. Lots of roasted notes and chocolate, worth checking out.
