355ml can poured into tulip 5/12/14

A dark cola with enough clarity to see half way to the other side under the large and loose foam that falls quickly leaving just a couple random patches of lace

S chocolate, vanilla, earthy leafy hops, coco powder, and a hint of coconut oil in the background, reminds me of tanning oil but its faint

T just a hint of char, more earthy notes, almost nutty, not far off the smell, tastes good but not all that intense

M somewhat light for a porter but the bubbles fluff it up a little, a little slick on the palate and I think there's more flavor on the finish then while your drinking it

O one of those beers that's good but could use more of everything, if they pumped up the intensity this would be memorable

I've heard about this beer and was stoked to pick it up in my local market but at nearly 16$ a 4 pack I can't see myself buying it again
