This pours an intense midnight black with a thin lightly cocoa-colored ring of foam.
I’m loving this aroma—it’s roasty and smokey, with dark chocolate nibs and a light ‘Belgian’ character contributing some floral notes. The flavor is similar, with the Belgian yeasty esters that mellow out an incredibly tasty cocoa roast. Whispers of smoke dance across the palate. No note needed; the beer itself says “drink me.” Loved it.

Had this thrown in a trade for some Russian River stuff as an extra and hot diggity dog it's good stuff.

This beer essentially tastes like cocoa puffs. The vanilla is present but overwhelming cocoa taste.

The aroma is pleasant but not overpowering. Still a surprise for a low ABV beer.

Easily one of the finest porters I've had in a long time and one that actually lives up to it's name.

Intense chocolate nose
Dark brown to chestnut. 3" tan head that slowly collapses – excellent lace.
Palate: chocolaty but not cloying, a touch of vanilla, some sweetness but not overbearing.
Medium body, medium to medium high carbonation. The creamy body and the chocolate go very well together.
