Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds branded imperial pint glass
Amazing that I haven't reviewed this brew yet! Pours the darkest brown possible, bordering on black, capped with a very light beige two and a half finger fluffy head. Great retention and significant lacing present. Bakers chocolate, general roastiness, burnt sugar, and grapefruit rind on the nose. This is a beer whose taste closely follows the nose: roasted malt, light espresso notes, dark/bakers chocolate, and burnt caramel and sugar. The hops make their presence well-known toward the very dry finish in the form of grapefruit rind and spruce-like bitterness. Medium bodied, well carbonated, and slick and a bit oily. A very unique porter and one that I welcome every year around the holidays.
