Never saw a head this big. Tastes like a dark porter.

A-Poured into a pint glass with a thin finger of skimming tan head above a black,opaque brew.
S-Dark roasted malt with notes of coffee and slightly burnt grain.
T-Like the aroma, slightly burnt flavor. Not much else going on.
M-A bit of an acrid finish, moderate body.
O-Not very exciting. Don't need to have this one again.

Nose: juniper, slight chocolate, coffee, Appearance: black, brilliant, but dense. Lace like a winter time etching. Palate: very creamy, suspicion of sweetness up front but the juniper in the background working with the hops to dry it out – there is a long lingering juniper hop presence in the aftertaste. Feel: Fine soft mouth filling carbonation. Overall: The juniper is very interesting – it does hint of fine gin. The dark roasted malts go very well with the juniper. Almost like a Russian Imperial Stout with juniper lurking in the background, chicory suggested in the finish.

L - Very dark brown. Pretty dark, but appears clear. Short-lived, short brown head.
S - Dark malt. Molasses, coffee, toffee.
T - Also dark malts. Burnt toast and coffee. Dry finish. On the bitter side. A touch of citrus.

Pours a dark brown with plenty of rich tan head. Coffee, roasted malt, and a little raw cocoa bean on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a roasty char malt note.

Pours very dark brown to black. A large head collapses quickly to be a thin, lasting cover. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of cocoa/toffee with a hint of juniper.

The taste is of chocolate, toffee with juniper and a mild roast (coffee) finish. The juniper blends well into the solid porter without being too much. Nicely balanced. Alcohol is very well-covered.

It is medium-bodied, smooth, slightly slick.

A unique, well-done winter brew. A nice, strong porter with a touch of juniper.
