Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices on the nose. A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate and fig fruits diving into a semi-dry finish of toast and biscuit.

Pitch black with small tan head, little bit of lace.
Smells excellent. Sweet, spicy graham cracker, hints of nutmeg, cocoa powder, vanilla, tootsie rolls and malt. A+
Tastes like a beer version of a chocolate malt. Smooth bready vanilla and chocolate flavors balanced by subtle hop bitterness and hint of roastiness.
Would be nice if this beer was a bit richer and fuller in mouthfeel.For a regular porter its nice, but I'd love to see an "imperial" version of this brew.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A great porter! Poured into a signature pint glass, a dark opaque brown with a thin layer of tan bubbles for a head. Roasty aroma, with lots of dark malts, semisweet chocolate, a touch of coffee bitterness, and notes of vanilla, cinnamon and sugar, and just a hint of smoke. The flavor truly came out when I let the beer get closer to room temperature. Big roasty malts, dark chocolate, brown sugar, mild sensation of figs, toasted marshmallow, and a defined graham cracker taste that tantalized all senses and lingered pleasantly in the aftertaste. Nearly full-bodied, and very drinkable. I had no problem ordering another.

A peculiar flavor that goes downhill, and not in the usual Colorado way. Dark brown, not much of a foam, though adequate carbonation in the mouth. Interesting aroma of burnt toast.

This starts with a slightly sweet mellow note and descends into a darker, dishwatery region. I guess you can tell your taste buds it's graham crackers. Seems to get oddly bitter like juniper twigs. Surprising winey flavor full of tannins. Not pleasant, and leaves a medicinal aftertaste. On tap at the brewpub in lower downtown Denver.
