12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. "4JX" stamped on back label.

Pours very dark brown with a tan head that quickly reduces; fairly good lacing nonetheless.

Aroma: mild with more dark fruit than expected.

Flavor: richer and less sweet than the aroma suggests. Hints of dark bread, raisins, and light spices, with some bittersweet chocolate and a touch of coffee in the finish.

O: excellent porter, if not a great as the best (e.g., Fullers).

Serving type: bottle

This is what pirates drink to keep even keel through the unmerciful ravages of mother nature's worst. If ye daren't take a drink, walk the plank instead or the bludgeoning ye shall receive shall equal the insolence of your insubordinate caterwauling for your mother's teet.

This is malt heaven!
Dark, rich, bitter, sweet--perfection.
Appearance: deep solid dark brown
Smell: Caramel and dates
Taste: perfect balance of deep, dark, and rich flavors finished with a nice bitterness
Overall: this is an amazing beer not to be missed. I have no favorite beer style, but this is on my list of favorite beers now.
