Got this bottle courtesy of a trade. Worthy of its name, it pours a pure black with a smallish mocha head which settled to a coating. Similar colored lacing is thin and soapy looking. Nose is coffee, chocolate, licorice and some whisky, maybe bourbon. Taste is roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, some oak and bourbon. Very nice balance in this. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium, fairly healthy carbonation and a very pleasant dry, warm finish. This is a wonderful porter and not much like many others. Absolutely worth your attention if you can still find it.
