Havent had a porter in a while so I thought id give this little sea monster a shot.

Poured it into a Brooklyn snifter glass because an American porter requires an American glass.

Appearance is dark as night with the khaki head looking all hot n' bothered

Smell was a biggy on this one as I immediately got carmel, banana, malt, sex, booze like bourbon.

Taste in the start is boozy and a big body mamma slamma while the finish has a dark mocha, bitter, bourbony taste.

Overall this is a great beer and Im glad I picked er up. Babba booey babba booey.

12oz single bottle, a worthy brewing concern, for All Hallow's Eve, methinks, while all the li'l munchkins roam up and down the street.

This beer pours a veritably solid, light-absorbing black, with two skinny fingers of tightly foamy, and rather creamy mocha head, which leaves little beyond a few wayward specks of remote islet lace around the glass as it duly recedes.

It smells of pungent bittersweet chocolate, rich black licorice, concentrated black fruit - prune, cherry, and raisin - dense caramel, vanilla pudding, charcoal smoke, mildly astringent alcohol, and musty earthy hops. The taste is again replete with anise and sweet cocoa notes, caramelized toffee, edgy dark, dusty fruit - the usual and already delineated suspects - overly sugared espresso, a hint of dank treacle, cold smoked wood, well-restrained simmering booze, a mild soya saltiness, and a mustiness that one might mistake for, or perhaps be given to assign to, hops.

The carbonation is quite low-key, a tad frothy, and generally dismissible, the body a swarthy medium-heavy weight, and undeniably smooth, with a heady creaminess to top it off. It finishes on the sweet side, the chocolate, coffee, caramel, and well-behaved alcohol ceding nary an inch.

A hell of an imperial porter, with strong RIS or DIPA tendencies. The somewhat sour fruit does drag this kicking and screaming squarely back into porter territory, only to be bedeviled by the subtle smoke and burgeoning booze. Complex, sexy, and quite compelling. Watch out if this one suggests going back home to its place.
