Poured into a 16oz Great Divide Snulip glass canned on 11/02/17. Pours a very dark mahogany with a 2 plus finger brown head that leaves-thin wisps of lace behind with some solid retention as it slowly settles into a thin ring of bubbles.

Smell is dark bakers chocolate, coffee grounds, vanilla beans, toffee, and a little sweet tobacco.

Taste follows dark chocolate, dry coffee, toffee, vanilla, and some tobacco and maybe a little leather.

Mouthfeel is creamy and a little bigger than medium, plenty of life, maybe a tad dry, and it drinks much larger than 5.2% ABV. I thought it was 6.5 to 7%.

Overall this is a very roasty and utterly delicious sessionable Porter, well done. Thanks jzeilinger for this can.

Aroma is dark/toasted malts and mild coffee. The flavor is dark/toasted malts, chocolate/mild coffee and a slightly burnt toast/acidic/dryish finish.

Pours very dark with little to no smell. Thinner than expected when you first taste it with a slight to medium smokey flavor. If you find it and have the money, you may consider getting it if you feel like trying something new.
