4.18/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - pours a virtually diminishing, off-white head with almost no lacing throughout. The body is a deeply red-backed brown to almost black body.

S - absolutely delightful. A moderately malty brew with hints of molassess and STRONG bitter coffee. There is alight hoppiness to balance it out, without being strong enough to pull varietal nnuances from it, but nevertheless there.

T - there is a brilliantly clean, smoky toasted cramell and coffee taste to this traditional brew. Really, quite full in palate and works differently all over your mouth. t starts sweet, then the bitter coffee hits you, and a SUPER long finish is a very intersting addition, cigars. (being a cigar smoker, I can appeciate this taste)

M - the soft carbonation and medium to full body, and just right wetness, lets you...

D - ...keep drinking this all day and night if you'd like.

No wonder why this is one of IH's year long brews, but I do wonder why it is not more celebrated.

3.66/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A smooth porter with a minimal amount of bumpin' flavor touches. Consistent and nice. I think that's where its strength lies is in its consistency and not so much in any unusual flavor settings. Carbonation and the bubble is high and biting. Pleasant enough.
