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)
