4.18/5 rDev +1.2%
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.

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.

I love this beer. Pours black as night with a thin coffee colored head. The smell is full of sweet malt and toasty aromas. The taste is full of toast, coffee, and dark chocolate flavors. Very delicious. Although it is worth mentioning that for such a heavy beer I thought the flavors were well balanced and it had a nice clean finish. I love the aftertaste as well which is good because it is a nice velvety consistency that coats your mouth and throat. Would absolutely recommend.

Pours opaque brown-black beer with decent tan 2-finger head, prone to long retention. Robust coffee smell and taste with dark chocolate sourness in the finish. Viscous, with moderate carbonation. Smooth and well-balanced. Strongly recommended.
