Black color with brown head. Aroma is really fragrant and floral with nice chocolate in the background. Taste follows, really nice acacia flower notes, chocolate, slightly sweet but finishes with a nice coffee roastiness. Body is on the light side but it's quite smooth on the palate. Really nice porter, quite different from all others I tasted so far.

Black in color. A dense, thick, tan colored foam sits on top. The aroma is of chocolate malts with pine-like hops in the background. It's flavor has more of the chocolate malts, backed by a subtle vanilla flavor, and a bunch more from the pine-like hops. Big piney, earthy hops in a roasted chocolate malt porter. Relatively hoppy for a porter in my opinion, but it seems to fit well with the rest of the beer. It's a good beer, I enjoyed it, but I doubt I'd get all crazy over buying it a second time.

2015 vintage. Some of the dice has faded but is still moderately present. Solid Porter but nothing outstanding. A little thin on the body. Not great but something cool to drink at Christmas.
