bottle 183 of 991

2 fingers of dark cocoa craggy head, almost pitch black with some light bending around the corners, some carbonation noticed at the bottom of the glass dissapearing into the great dark vastness, lacing is good as it coats in fine sheets, the head fades but does not dissapear
like a talk show hosted by magic johnson, pat sajack or chevy chase... good looking brew.

dark dry cocoa powder, almost smokey, chocolate milk, almost coffee notes but mostly chocolate, the notes it hits are strong even if it is not the most complex thing you can imagine

taste etc...
at first velvety and then a prickly bite from the carbonation, moderately thick in the mouth, nice dark roasty chocolate flavor, it has sweetness but the hops give it the right bitter kick to balance it out, the roast flavor really settles in to the corners of the mouth, a nice offering, hits some good spots, not a stunner but nothing bad to report

very good, I would like to try it on tap.

On smell alone, I thought this was a nut brown. Once I tasted it, though, the smokey flavor of the malt came through. It was not what I'd call "robust", but it had just enough body without being too heavy, and was a perfect complement to our Easter dinner. This is a step up from what I've had from Bolero Snort to date, and this kind of effort bodes well for their future.

From a bottle, pours black with a thin white head.

The smell is sweet malt, chocolate powder, roast and a little smoke. The chocolate dominates overall here. The flavor is more chocolate, roasted oats, bitter hops and a fair amount of booze. This drinks very big for only a standard porter. The alcohol gives some sweetness to the dry backbone. The mouthfeel is good, but a bit too carbonated. I enjoy the bitter clean finish.
