Pretty dark color. Brown head. Low persistence.

Light bouquet, malt and cocoa. Ovaltine. Nice.

Flavors of dark, roasty malt, licorice, Demerara rum. Smoke is definitely present, but not overwhelming, it doesn't get in the way. Its a real beer, not a novelty.

Moderately rich mouthfeel, definitely pushing toward Imperial. Nice carbonation, not too much. 8.8% ABV is masked byt he depth of the beer.

Really well integrated finish. Clean. Cooca. Bitter, but not overly. Complex. Not super long.

-midnight black beer with little head
- very smoky chocolate notes with a sweet start to alcohol end
-light chocolate notes, lots of roasted grains and smokiness with a alcohol end
- thick and warming beer, doesn't over coat though in my opinion
-overall a very smoky beer pleasant but i expected less smoke from a imperial porter but top notch beer none the less

Had this on tap at the Pint Room in Carmel on Left Hand night. Excellent. The color is a deep brown, not mistaken for black which is good for a stout. The flavor is SUPER smoky, with a hint of vanilla in the aftertaste. Like you're in a burning building smoky. Loved it.
