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.

Light black in color with almost no penetration to light. A half inch of khaki colored head blankets the top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is dark malt with a hint of smoke. The taste is comprised of bitter dark malt with a hint of sweetness in the finish. The mouth is smooth and silky.

A - Pours black with a two-finger foamy tan head. The head leaves some light sticky lacing.

S - Faint aromas of vanilla and roasted malts.

T - Taste of vanilla, marshmallow, and roasted malts. The finish is sweet with a vanilla and light coffee adding some bitterness.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is thin and watery.

O - A little disappointed in this beer. I expected more from a GABF medal winner. This would make a good winter session beer.

Very lovely looking porter, black with a dark mocha head of creamy foam. The smell in the glass is mildly sweet; vanilla, dark roast malts, mild smoke. Tastes of more vanilla, spices, slightly metallic hops, lots going on and some interesting flavors i can't put my finger on. Equal parts dark malt, spices, vanilla and hops. Interesting porter; not quite what I expected, but still a good beer I'm glad I get to try.

I wasn't as enthused about this beer as I expected to be, given how many people enjoy it and that it's on tap at a lot of places around Denver. Something just seems to be missing from it. As such, I haven't gone over there to try any of their other beers, but maybe I should because they probably have something else I'll like more. The brewery itself is always packed, so there must be something to that.
