Half growler from the brewery.

Two fingers of dark tan foam atop a black body that reveals no highlights.

Deep dark chocolate aroma. Bits of coffee. Hints of oatmeal. Some dark fruits.

Taste follows nose. Deep chocolate. Scoop of oatmeal. Shot of coffee. Dark fruits.

Slick oily full mouthfeel.

A superior porter. Recommended. (332 characters)

Definitely one of the best beers I've ever had, and probably my favorite porter. A great balance of malty sweetness and dark roasted flavors, along with an incredibly smooth mouthfeel and a really inviting, sweet aroma. Just fantastic.

Appearance: Awesome. Opaque black, with a little bit of light showing through a deep brown at the bottom of my mug. A thin vanilla-colored head that stuck around pretty well, especially for a growler pour

Smell: Super inviting. Very sweet, obvious notes of chocolate and/or coffee.

Taste: Perfectly balanced between sweet roasted malts and more bitter, smoky flavors. A definite kick of alcohol in the finish (in a good way)

Mouthfeel: Smooth. Really, really easy to drink for a medium-high ABV dark beer. (745 characters)

Deep, Roasty, Inviting, Level

A dreamy palate of coffee and chocolate from the roasted malts, delicate caressing smoothness is a well played by the oats. Some sweetness unveils both dark sugars and black currants. Chewy medium body shows off its girth, big perhaps but still very drinkable. A world class brew to say the least, while the beer geeks are clamoring for their hop ladened beer which are great though this is a spectacular run at a dark style and bringing it to a world class level.

Pours a dark brown. Nice porter that is a great mix of rich dark chocolate and sweet milk chocolate. Little bit of hops and vanilla. A well done example of the style. (168 characters)

Pitch black in color with a nice latte colored foamy head.

The smell is incredible with notes of vanilla, caramel, chocolate and coffee.

Tastes very sweet with a minimal amount of bitterness. The taste profile is very similar to how it smells. Sheer brilliance!

An incredibly creamy beer with mild carbonation.

Wow, i'm happy I picked this up! I'll be on the lookout for this one again. (390 characters)
