Pours an inky black with a thick mocha head that slowly settles over a minute or so

Big time cocoa nose, with hints of cherry

Vanilla, cherry, dark chocolate. More coffee. Layered and very complex.

Really well balanced. Not overly sweet, but nice big body.

Fantastic beer. One of my favorites from the Bruery

had this a few times and most recently the fresh 2017 batch. The description of this beer is spot on with everything that comes through. The "strong porter" versus a stout is certainly obvious when drinking. Smooth milk, creamy chocolate. The cherries and vanilla really has a nice presence with great balance in this beer. It definitely is smooth with no heat and drinks more like a 10% beer.
