Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Small sticker on the bottle says Bottled On Feb 2, 2014
A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Initial notes of light oak give way to dark roasted malt, chocolate and caramel sweetness. Slightly effervescent plus a bit of booze.
T- Flavor is more straightforward with some enjoyable dark roast that brings more notes of chocolate and caramel. Sweet aftertaste hints at vanilla. Not much oak though which isn't surprising since there were only trace amounts in the aroma.
M- Somewhat thick and slick with medium carbonation and a full body.
O- Besides it being a bit overcarbonated, this is a well-made porter. Kind of lacking on the oak presence, but it's good nonetheless.

Pours a deep dark chocolate brown with a thin light beige head atop that is gone very quickly,not much carbonation to this beer.Light chocolate in the nose along with mild charred fruit,a tinge of the oak is present,pretty subdued.Flavors of milk chocolate and faint dry earthiness underneath,the oak is present but is light and the toast is light,some dark fruit comes into play as it warms a little.Not bad but it's pretty ho hum,nothing really stands out for me here.

Bottled Feb 2, 2014. Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, with a fluffy, bubbly, low profile, light tan head. Aromas of roast cocoa, subtle bitter backbone, woody highlights, and a subtle coffee blend. Pretty smooth and balanced nose. Flavors are smooth and balanced, with a mocha blend throughout, a bit more bitter coffee in the backbone, and some wood highlights to add a touch of rough edges to the otherwise smooth characteristics. Smooth bodied, with a bitter, roasted coffee and chocolate aftertaste. The finish is smooth and fairly clean, with a touch of bitter roast at the end. Not bad, but the flavors drop a bit from the great look and aromas.
