Very Good

Notes:
Enjoy the blend of chocolate and brown malts in this robust porter with crazy-rich color and ruby highlights. The subtle bitterness of chocolate is balanced by sweet, organic toasted coconut. Perfect to pair with food or just to enjoy alone. So go nuts, you'll be glad you did.

A: Pours an opaque yet clear extremely dark brown in color with moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the surface of the beer and a moderate amount of garnet red highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy very dark tan in color that slowly reduces to a mottled very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, and very light hints of vanilla + coconut.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of roasted malts with moderate flavors of cocoa nibs/dark chocolate without a lot of associated sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of vanilla and coconut (again without being sweet). Light to moderate amounts of roasty bitterness that lingers well beyond the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: Very enjoyable - nice coconut, cocoa nib, and roasty malt flavors though I wish a little more of the coconut came through in the aroma (and flavor). Easy to drink and definitely a great beer to grab if you come across it.

Had at the grand opening. Served from tap into NoDa shaker. Poured massively dark red brown with a one and a half finger cream colored head that subsided to half a finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, cream, dark chocolate, and and very subtle vanilla. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, cream, and very subtle coffee. It had a medium feel on a palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty solid brew. The nibs on this one were quite overpowering which was quite nice. The cream aspect added a nice touch to balance the nibs bitterness. A solid brew for the style. Definite must try if you have the opportunity. Tick.

Had this on tap in a pint glass. Pours dark brown with a nice dark tan frothy head. There is good amount of lacing in this beer. The smell was better than average fairly rich. The taste was really pretty good with a subtle coconut and a hoppiness that came through. The mouthfeel was good and it was well carbonated.
