Bottle was set out 1 hour before consumption - Poured from a bomber into a 10 oz. Brandy Snifter. Opaque Black with light brown head - dissipated quickly - with good lacing

Aroma: Chocolate, licorice, Wood, boozey, charred sugar/marshmallow, slight hops (tinge of resiny citrus)

Taste - slightly bitter front with a little burn (from the alcohol no doubt), low-carbonation, - med/full bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel - and a semi-sweet finish. Lots going on here in the flavor - dark cherry/currants, chocolate, cocoa, maltiness, a lot of charred oak.

A pretty big and complex beer.

Everything you'd expect from a world class porter. Dark as night with a thin mocha head that quickly dissipates. Rich and deep flavors of coffee, dark jammy fruits and roasted malt. Truly delightful. 13% abv but you'd never guess it. Enjoyed on a cold fall evening.
