In this quite dark ale, dark malts provide flavors of coffee and dried fruit. Try with dark chocolate, cheese or red meat dishes.

Thanks DemmaAnn. Somehow this ends up as review #1800, cool.

A- Black pour but not motor oil dark to a few pint glasses. A tan crown briefly appears but falls to a frothy belt leaving sparse spotty lace.

S- Deep dark cocoa powder at the forefront with a spicy, dry dark fruit contingent complimenting it. Toffee, roast nuts, semi burnt malt and caramelized barley.

T- Strikes a balance between the really dark roasty tones and the brown toasty malts. Semi bitter dark chocolate leads the way down the path to deep toasted nuts, caramel, toffee, medium roast coffee, cherry and figgy raisins.

MF- Medium bodied overall thickness with a consistency that is a bit creamy and crisp. Carbonation fairly high but still suits the fairly decadent flavors.

I'm pretty sure I have had this a few times by now and held off thinking I would get it again for the review. The time is now and my high expectations are satisfied by the great balance of deep chocolate and toasty brown things.

Pours really dark brown, almost black, seems a bit oily. Small mocha head for quite some time.
Rich roasted malts on the nose, a bit smokey, some chocolate cake, some light coffee, some dried plum and fig. A really intense fragrance, tho.
Taste is strong as well, with some dark fruit up front, not too complex (plum, fig, fresh raisin), but backed up by a touch of spirit. A little bit of citrus hidden in there, but the roasted malts show up, rich and smokey, like burnt toast and chocolate brownie crust. Doesn't get too heavy tho, and the hops are pretty shy, so the finish isn't too dry or bitter.
Aftertaste has some bit of coffee, roasted malts, a light dark fruit note lingering. Medium bodied, low carbonated, but really smooth.
A flavorful porter that's really easy to drink. And drink. And drink.
