I got to "sample" a lot of this beer while hosting a beer tasting event at the liquor store I work at. I chose this brew because I was initially impressed with it, as were most of the customers who sampled it.
For the official review I poured the 12 oz can into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
A- After an aggressive pour I get a beautiful jet-black, opaque body with amber highlights. The head is thick, bubbly , and mocha colored which rises slowly and reduces even slower, leaving some thick, uniform lacing and a thick layer of patchy foam on the surface of the beer.
S- Primarily fresh coffee beans, toasted malt, dark chocolate, and maybe even a subtle vanilla-toffee aroma. The aroma is upfront and inviting.
T- Upfront I get milk chocolate, espresso, and vanilla notes, this develops into a bittersweet chocolate, roasty, nearly charred malt flavor that leaves a perfect bitterness on the tongue that is characteristic of an excellent robust porter.
M- Thick and creamy with low carbonation.
Out of the three flagship beers that foolproof has released, I have to say that this is by far the best one. They really hit this out of the park. It hits all the high points of an excellent porter/stout - it looks nice, smells nice, tastes delicious, and carries a thick, robust body. It's definitely a sipper, not a beer that you would drink the whole six pack in one sitting. Hopefully foolproof will expand it's distribution so more people can experience this one. Try it if you can!

3.73/5 rDev -2.1%

A: Appears black in the glass. Fully opaque - don't see any light coming through on this one. Forms a rather large dark beige colored head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing.
S: Aroma is dark malts, burnt malts, coffee, carbonation, and a slight hint of pine.
T: Starts off with dark, chalky, dry malts. A bit of burnt malt in the mix with that burnt malt bitterness. Dark chocolate and cocoa.
M: Body is on the heavier side of medium. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness. Chalky.
O: A decent porter. Nothing spectacular, but not a bad drinker either.
