3.81/5 rDev +3.3%
Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a jet black coloring with hazelnut highlights, and a frothy, low profile, light tan head. Nose of cocoa nibs, roasted coffee, and subtle cream highlights. Flavors are roasted and bitter cocoa nib forward, with a bitter coffee undertone. Thin, dry body, with a bittersweet aftertaste. The finish is heavily roasted, lingering on a dry, smooth feel. Solid representation of the Porter style.

3.3/5 rDev -10.6%
Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a tumbler.
A: Black. Pours a 1+ finger, foamy, tan head. Settles slowly, and lingers. Light lacing.
S: Coffee, dark chocolate, and fresh tea.
T: Candied malt. Raisin, caramel, and a little peat.
M: Thick and hearty. Has something of a synthetic feeling sweetness that lingers on the palate.
Atmosphere is okay. Fair head, and some light lacing. Nose is characteristic of the style... coffee and chocolate most notably. Roasted malt, with some unusual fruity sweetness and a bit of unwelcome pungency. Overall, this is an okay quaff.
