L: Rich onyx hues with a dark sandy head and moderate lacing
S: A bit of the barrel on the nose with dark chocolate, raspberries, and cherries
T: Layered profile of dark roast coffee, sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, and fruit
F: Medium body with ample carb
O: I enjoyed this one quite a bit more than the 3 Floyds version, although both are excellent porters. Decadent and full flavored - very tasty.

Look is fair. Not much head. Smells of the vanilla and base beer with slight barrel. On the sip you get a nice cherry burst. Slight coffee there and some good chocolate. Feel is to be as expected from a porter. Just slightly thinner than a stout. Overall an amazing beer. Great collaboration.

Big beer. Smooth. Not a lot of booziness for a 14% beer. Bourbon coffe and lots of vanilla flavor powers this lightly roasted porter.
