Pours black with hints of dark reddish-brown on the edges. Nice big foamy light-brown head.

Smells strongly of roasted coffee beans.

Tastes of roasted coffee and bitter chocolate with a nice creamyness to it. The taste has a real interesting mix of sweet and bitter that is very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.

Drinkability is great. I wish I had bought more than one of these...

22oz bottle obtained in the No BS 4 BIF via dirtylou. Thanks for the opportunity.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head is quickly down to a swirly skim, with leggy slow-falling lace. Aroma is rich coffee. Taste is sweet coffee from start to finish, with alcohol warming at the close. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, and drinkability is excellent. Scary easy to drink this one.

Pours an opaque jet black with a finger and a half of light brown head.

A nice coffee aroma with some chocolate, cocoa, and some earthy hops.

Coffee is the dominant flavor here with some cocoa and dark, roasted bitterness on the finish.

The feel is very smooth at first with medium body and thins towards the back of the palate with low carbonation.

I didn't have the original iteration of this beer, so I have nothign to compare it to, however, it's a very easy drinking and delicious beer... it doesn't seem anywhere close to 9.2%. I'd peg this at 6.5% if I was blindfolded.

I sampled at room temp poured into a pint glass. The beer pours a dark chocolate borwn with creamy tan head of 2 cm foaming up and fading very gradually, leaving a sturdy surface layer throughout.
Aroma is baker's chocolate and some coffee beans. First sip reveals a creamy soft body with fine rolling carbonation. Flavor is brown sugar and roasted malt with some coffee bean notes. NO hops and well hidden alcohol make this an easy drinking and robust porter. QUite a nice beer.
