look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a nice pitch black with a small but dense medium brown head. Head fades slowly with decent retention. Spotty little bits of lacing.

S: Burnt rye bread initially. Pretty much dead on. Hint of rye whiskey when swirled, but very mild. It stands out a decent bit more once the beer has fully warmed. Decently charry.

T: Really nice flavor. Sweet chocolate with rye bread and a little rye whiskey all mixed together up front. Rye flavors fade, leaving the chocolate - a hot fudge type flavor. Yum. Quick hit of rye whiskey in the finish with a little bit of drying charred oak between sips.

M: Medium bodied, very very smooth and mellow. Feels bigger than it really is.

O: I was little underwhelmed at the aroma but the taste really opened my eyes. Nice flavors and great balance - especially the chocolate. Barrel character is mild but adds a subtle layer of complexity. Delicious beer, a great porter.

A- very dark brown in color with a head that quickly dissipates leaving very little bubbles and a thin burnt orange ring on the edge of the glass. Laces nicely.

S- cocoa, dark fruit, vanilla, and rye in that order

T- Figs and raisins on the front end, along with boozy oak characteristics, followed by vanilla accents finishing with a mellow cocoa flavor that lingers pleasantly on the back end. Nicely balanced, and not too boozy.

M- Medium body with low carbonation and creamy texture

O- I expected a fuller body and more complex rye flavor, but this is quite enjoyable. Very nice blend of cocoa, vanilla, and dark fruit flavors. I would have preferred a more prominent rye flavor and perhaps more carbonation. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this brew and would buy it again.
