A little thin in mouth feel, but tasting decent. Lots of coffee and a bit of maple. Not a ton of barrel, very smooth and sweet. I missed the coconut entirely. I think this may have been the very last Forager release that didn't require a 15 hour line share - I miss those days.

poured from 750mL bottle into a taster. line share at forager. pours a dark brown with light brown edges. no head. smell is sweet with a bit of whiskey to it. taste is honey sweet with bourbon barrel-aged breakfast aromas. taste is similar. there is a lot going on in this beer, however, it does not get muddled or lose its way. there’s a really nice sweetness to it from the honey barrel, the maple and the vanilla with coffee and that typical porter roastiness to compliment it all. feel is amazingly thick for a porter. really impressed with that aspect of this beer. very tasty stuff. would love to revisit with a bigger pour.

Wow. This beer was fabulous. Pours thick, murky blackbwith a small minimal head. Mouthfeel is very thick. All the flavors roll through your palate. Maybe one of the 10 best beers I have ever had. Cannot find one fault with this beer

Poured at Perennial from an unassuming bottle that had Copper word "NOOK" down one side. Yellow wax, so it had that "wax mystique" going for it. When poured there was 0 head. Black as night, and comment I heard most often was "this is porter?!??!". Smells very inviting, with waves of cocoa and coffee most predominant. Very smooth on the palate, and then a fudge aftertaste just clings to your palate. For about 3 to 5 minutes, it just lingered. Phenomenal beer, was my favorite of the day.
