500 ml bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no clarity or vision of anything. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Coconut, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, nice warm booze, roasted, and nutty.

Taste: All the above awesomeness. So smooth and delicious. Lots of flavor.

Mouthfeel: Silky, creamy, super smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and very delicious.

Overall: Another solid variant of Framinghammer. Probably the best one yet.

Wow! Impenetrable dark black. Not much on the nose but it may have been in the bottle a while. A creamy mouth filling assault of chocolate malt with the subtle sweetness of coconut ( and I don't even like coconut!). Thick and full the way a porter should be. Yum!

Dark brown with a very dense and creamy mocha head that leaves sick lacing. Beautiful brew.

On the nose is bourbon infused fudge, vanilla, caramel, toasted coconut, wood. Palate follows perfectly – brown sugar, chocolate, bourbon, roasted nutty flavors up front, vanilla, caramel, coconut showing up clean and clear as well!! Finishes with dark roasty malts, toasted oak, a slight bitterness, a bit of spice, and a perfect touch of booze. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy, coats nicely but could be thicker/creamier ... that being said the texture makes it super drinkable. Overall this is a pretty phenomenal stout that is decadent and rich, my favorite characteristics in a stout. Kind of hard not to chug this one lol, great stuff!
