Pours deep and black with an off white head that hangs around for awhile, moderate lacing. Subtle ruby notes appear when held to the light. The smell is understated toffee and dark fruit and the alcohol is there, with just a soft warning.The flavor starts with dark cheeries and chocolate, rolls into toffee malts and finishes with a burst of hop bitterness. There's a nice vanilla to the midbody and the flavor makes you sit back and try again. It's not too heavy or surypy like many imperials or east euro porters and my 22 is almost gone already. I could go for another. This is a great beer.

Growler pour into a nonic pint.
A- Black, dark red highlighting. Tan 1/4" head, kind of an espresso crema style. A bit lacy.
S- Coffee, cocoa, small hint of dark fruits and booze.
T- Roasted sweetness. Malty. Not as dry and roast as a stout but really nice for a strong porter.
M- Full body. Sweet body. But a balancing semi dry finish.
O- Great body and flavor. Heavy, but easy drinking.
