Overall really good beer. Heavy start of molasses, followed by some hops, caramel, and vanilla.
Finishes with coffee, toffee, and ash. This beer really moves along the palate. Would drink again, but only to share with friends. Too rich to drink more than one.

From the 100 Barrel Series, poured into a pint glass. The beer was a dark brown color with a tan head. The head was fairly large to begin with, but dissipated quickly.

Aroma of caramel malt and smoke. A little bit of chocolate and dark fruit.

The taste followed the nose. Smoky caramel, chocolate, and plum.

A smooth beer. I thought the smokiness worked well.

My bottle says enjoy by 5/5/13, however I'm liking the dryness of the porter with a matching leafy herbal pale ale...that seems to be what this beer is all about the porter has much more ruby highlights than normal, basically a pre bottled version of a black and tan (or pale/stout and pale/golden ale). Labels aside I see a beautiful dark beer with tan textured lacing, very dark body almost opaque nearly black but with ruby highlights from the blending of tow styles. Nose takes on some earthy pine cone scented hops marriage with a dark black ale, the blend of the two beers brings some decadent tones to my senses. Flavors embrace the palate with malt complexity and herbal hops that's basically what's happening here not a bad stick in the bunch love you guys.

Hits the Duvel tulip with a decent khaki hued head, large bubbled and settling quickly over a deep brownish amber colored body...almost Coca-Cola like in appearance. The nose isn't too spectacular: light roasted malt with some sweetness backing it. I get a fruity/dark malt first impression, mild hopping, light bodied. Drinks easy, light roastiness and hop floweriness finishes it out. Goes down quick, tasty. Nice dark session ale here.
