Pours a dark brown color with khaki colored head. Coffee, roasted malts, and chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with an over abundance of roast.

Oh, how these are good in the morning. I secured this beer Smokey and the Bandit style from Toledo.

Pours like a black and tan. Great malty, full bodied aroma with a matching taste of strong coffee, cocoa and even a little Mexican vanilla snuck in there. There is also a burnt marshmallow smell and flavor as well but that could be the vanilla and coffee talking to you.

Great recommendation from a Toledo, OH liquor store.

Pours a dark brown and nearly black opaque color; a thin ring like and slightly tan lace retains throughout. The first sniff is of dark fruit, then, nutty, vanilla, wood and a lighter coffee roast. The taste has a surprising mild to moderate hops bitterness that sometimes detracts from the maltiness. However, I do taste the roasted malt, nutty and coffee like qualities. The sweetness comes out in the finish, it is a vanilla sweet and a zesty almost citric like feel. The aftertaste is dry and bitter. The body is smooth and medium, close to light. Perhaps a bit thin for a porter.
An easy to drink porter. I love the title, but, it is not as robust as it implies and the balance is perhaps slightly too skewed on the hops side. However, it is a good and flavorful beer.

I quite enjoyed this one. The highlight for me was a rich, dense, malty flavor--some grain and chocolate and not a lot of fuss other than that (not super boozy or vanilla-rich or sweet, just well balanced between grainy and chocolate). Nice head and color. I found the smell just very slightly metallic and not selling the flavor as well as it deserved. Overall, a solid porter, though--enjoyed it!
