Notes / Commercial Description:
Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices on the nose. A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate and fig fruits diving into a semi-dry finish of toast and biscuit.

Pours a very dark mahogany brown with very little light transmission in the glass with a quarter finger light khaki head that dissipates to a thick film with light lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, cocoa, vanilla and a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is dark toasted malt, graham cracker, light vanilla and cocoa with a little cinnamon with cocoa in the finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. I have to hand it to them, the graham cracker flavor is spot on. I'm positive if I dipped a graham cracker into an export porter, it would tasted just like this. And it is a great flavor with the malt. Not as sweet as a graham cracker, mild sweetness on par with the porter base. The malt is somewhere between an export porter and American style. The flavor is a little laid back, could use some more assertive malt, but perhaps the unique flavor of this would not work as well. Very clever and fun to drink. Well done and nice introduction to the brewery.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Dark Tootsie Roll brown with a khaki head that leaves a thick bubbly film and world map lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, dark toasted bread, light chocolate malt, sweet graham cracker.

Taste: Tangy opening leads into dark coffee roast and slightly bitter hops. Subtle notions of graham cracker. Finishes tangy. 3

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and dry.

Overall: A little too tangy and not as crackery or bready as I wanted. Smells more true to name than the taste.

Pours Brown. Foamy, medium, tan head that Fades slowly.

Smells graham cracker, caramel, light chocolate, roast and a hint of vanilla.

Taste roast and toast and malts, light caramel, light graham cracker and hints of chocolate and vanilla. Finish is semi dry with a malt and light Char linger. Medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.

Great balance and a slightly unusual but tasty take on the porter. Pours with a small beige head that soon disappears to leave an inviting glass of darkness. The nose is a heady mix of chocolaty malts and hops, with hints of coffee and vanilla. The taste brings it all together, with Graham crackers melding well with deep rich (and a tad spicy) coffee notes. The mouthfeel is relatively thin, as you would expect with a porter but the overall impression of this beer is long-lasting. Sweet as Graham crackers but not too much so! Go get some.

Appearance: Pours coffee brown with a massive beige head; strong retention and copious lace

Smell: Graham cracker dominant with just a hint of chocolate

Taste: Graham cracker, up front, with modest chocolate malt and marshmallow tones building through the middle; the finish is rather sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not quite sure what to make of this as the graham cracker dominates but the overall impression is a bit too sweet
