This is BIG BEER. Very deep chocolate color, intense roasted malt, milk chocolate, heavier body. Slow sipper. Excellent, quite big bodied, and heavy.

I'm getting a sandalwood incense taste.
Doesn't sound good; I know.
But it is good. Real good.

Dark brown with a ruby tinge, some visible carbonation and 3 fingers of ruddy brown head.

Smells of chocolate, coke, vanilla and cocoa dust. Dark, charred notes and tobacco.

Tastes rich, of chocolate syrup, dark toasted notes, tobacco and a solid bitter finish.

Thick, syrupy but smooth body. Moderate carbonation.

Got at Towne Liquors in Agawam, MA, drinking in New Hamburg, ON, March 29th, 2018. Well done, thick, and calls for more.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a snifter.

Pours a deep cola brown color with 2 fingers of khaki head. The head sticks around forever, but leaves nothing in the way of lacing.

The aroma is dark roasted malts and damn near nothing else. Maybe a hint of chocolate and unwashed dishes. Not pleasant.

The flavor is more if the same. Dark roasted malts, some very subtle chocolate, and perhaps an even more subtle hint if vanilla. Very boozy.

The feel is medium-full bodied with lighter carbonation. Alcohol asserts itself after every sip. Has a dry finish after the alcohol burn.

Overall, a weak excuse for a porter. The aroma is pretty awful and the flavors are only a moderate improvement. This is a 2 month old can but the booze just takes charge and makes the flavor and mouthfeel its bitch.

I sampled a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into a snifter. The beer pours a dark coffee brown color with a creamy tan head of 4 cm. This foam fades to thin edge layer a little after the pour. THe aroma is some roasted malt and dark chocolate and some milk chocolate. I also get a little char in the background. I dont get any booze or hops coming through on the nose.
The first sip reveals a silky smooth texture with mild spacious carbonation. The beer is extremely easy to drink and hides the 11% abv very well.
The flavor is sweet chocolate malt and some brown sugar with no hops nor any booze coming through at all. I also get a little bit of roasted malt and in general the beer is smooth drinking and I enjoy it very much. The body could be a little bit thicker to really enhance the quality of this brew. I do really like this beer and would try it again as I like big boozy brews but wouldnt chase this again due to the lighter body. Still worth trying and I do like it, but its not amazing.

Very chocolatey with a smoked malt backbone. Overall, very robust, and a really good porter.
