Pours a dark cola brown with a big milk chocolate head. Fantastic lacing and retention.

Smells of dark roasted malts. Dark fruits. Dates and raisins. Figs. A hint of alcohol. Big dark chocolate.

Taste mirrors the nose. Very toasty up front with tons of dark fruit. Sweet raisins settle towards the middle. Some booze on the finish.

Big mouthfeel. Not quite chewy stout but bigger than your average porter. Mild carbonation. Sticky.

Dark brown, borderline black color. Light brown head with good retention.

Aromas are roasted malt, dates, cocoa, and anise.

Robust flavors of roast, cocoa, and dates. Slightly boozy with and earthy maduro leaf finish.

Full mouthfeel that's cut with a moderate-high carbonation.

A fantastic beer with a wide range of flavors. Heavier than most porters with a nice boozy kick.
