Poured into a over sized snifter
Beautiful thick head that fades fairly quickly
Expresso, dark chocolate with some rum and raisins
Light and creamy mouth feel. On the palate i taste coffee, dark chocolate and chocolate milk shake
Really tasty porter that has the perfect layers of flavor whilst being super drinkable. Love it

4.18/5 rDev +1%
Poured in a pint glass.
App: 2 finger tan head that recedes rather quickly
Smell: Roasty coffee, burnt toast, bit of soda/cola aspect, dark chocolate, and maybe some dark fruits playing in there
Taste: Creamy mouthfeel but thin body, coats the mouth. Just enough carbonation to have a slight prickle on the tongue. Dark chocolate, bit of an acidic quality that comes from coffee or dark chocolate. Dark fruits. Some molasses like qualities. All followed up with slight piney hop taste.
Great porter. Very drinkable but not lacking on the flavor. More of a classic british taste.

3.99/5 rDev -3.6%
12oz bottle poured to oversized snifter
A: pours a dark cola brownish-black with a thin, light tan head. Minimal lacing.
S:nice and roasty. Dark chocolate, roasty coffee/espresso.
T: bittersweet chocolate and espresso. A bit of smoke, too. Dry and bitter finish.
M: thinner than I expected/hoped for. Lower side of carbonation. Would've preferred a slightly thicker beer.
O: definitely a great beer. Glad I picked this one up to try it.
