On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours black with a medium firm tan head, some good lace.

S: Lots of dark chocolate, soy, with a hint of dark fruit.

T: Dominated by dark chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet and flavourful, almost a dessert beer. Definite sweet raisin component.

M: Rich, thick, in-your-face. Soft carbonation, never really cloying which was nice.

O: A very good big porter/stout. I don't know the price in bottles, but this is certainly a good effort.

Absolutely beautiful pour. Black coffee black, with a creamy deep brown head. Dissipates leaving just a ring around the edges and a little swirl in the middle. Enticing.

The nose is kind of disappointing. almost a soy sauce twinge, and some dry cocoa. roasted coconut husk as it warms

Once it hits your lips, though....
Before I can even start appreciating the flavours (which are tasty), The silky satin smoothe... The only analogies I can think of are not particularly appropriate for a public forum, but let's just say it would be the kind to make you want to put a ring on it...
But back to flavours. Roasty chocolate. Chocolate somewhere between silky milk chocolate and dry cocoa, some of that coconut, a tinge of candied dark fruits: mainly on the sweeter side, with the bit of bitterness there is mainly being of the cocoa variety.

If you can get it, try it. I had high hopes coming in, and do not feel let down. Mainly due to that body. Silk. chewy. like a velour fog...
My least favourite aspect of this brew is mainly just that I feel compelled to listen to The Based God while drinking it, and, while I respect that he's doing his thing and trying to stay pure yadda yadda yadda... I don't find him to be a very good rapper. His songs just don't do anything for me. The beer is substantially better than the rapper.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into an oversized stemmed tulip

A: Can’t tell if this is black or if the lovely dark brown head is influencing me to think that the body is also brown. Either way, it’s dark as you would expect. Head faded away pretty quickly, leaving a thin ring around the edge. Not much lacing as it went down.

S: Sweet milk chocolate. Roasted chocolate malt. Cocoa. Some caramel. Slight floral hop presence.

T: Starts syrupy sweet and evolves into some nice roastiness. Fills your mouth with rich flavor then dries it out in the finish. Getting some soy sauce which isn't ideal. Some hop flavor shows up in the middle toward the end. Pretty intense flavor overall.

M: Full body, medium carb. Drinkability pretty low for me due to the sweetness and overall flavor intensity.

O: A well brewed beer, but most sweet porters/stouts just aren’t my cup of tea. I didn’t care for Imperial Biscotti Break and this isn’t different enough for me to like it more.
