12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a nonic true pint glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Expectations are high given the style. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a two finger head of lovely cream lacing, good thickness, and pretty good retention. Colour is a solid ruby-black.

Sm: Light mocha and coffee, heavy cream, hints of chocolate, caramel, and light nuts. A moderate strength aroma, and a pleasant one.

T: Mocha throughout, with a bit too much coffee in the third act. Nicely creamy, especially on the open. It's well balanced and built. The roasted barley foundation is nice, but I almost wish this was a stout so it could be more pronounced. That's more just personal preference. The finish contains the caramelized malt alongside the emergence of naked coffee. When the coffee isn't concealed by the cream and mocha, it's too bitter, subtly affecting the balance in an undesirable way.

Mf: Biscuity, pretty thick, smooth, creamy, and wet. Suits the flavour, but as a stout fanatic I'd like to have more dryness and coarseness. Still, it's good as a porter.

Dr: This would be excellent on nitro-draught. I'd like to see the roast increased/improved. I'd have it again, but preferably not out of the bottle.

Poured into the glass a deep dark brown color with ruby highlights. Head was a dense firm finger of tan colored foam. Lacing started thick and sticky.

Smell was sweet chocolate milk, rich caramel, dark roasted malts and buttery toffee.

Taste was a bittersweet mix of cocoa, coffee, dark toasted malt and a bit more hops than expected for the style. Bittering, dry finish.

Creamy milk-like mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation in a medium-heavy body.

It was drinkable, but a bit on the heavy side.
