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.

D: Sessionable.

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.
