Aroma is roasty and coffee laden, with nutty oatmeal notes.

Flavor is fairly chocolatey, lightly sweet initially, with coffee hitting mid palate and carrying into a roasty, moderately bitter finish. Just a hint of acidity.

A-almost black in color with a thin layer of dark khaki colored head that disappears quickly

S-lots of dark coffee in the smell with chocolate and molasses

T-lightly roasted oats with dark roasted coffee (not quite as much as the smell though) and chocolate and a bit of molasses

M-medium body and moderate carbonation, creamy feel to it

Overall a very good porter with a huge coffee smell, very drinkable

Pours seal brown with no head whatsoever--a remarkably flat pour. Aroma features a blast of black coffee, along with some roasted malt and burnt toast. The persistence of the coffee in the nose is quite impressive, as it reasserts its presence with every sip.

The taste features a comparable barrage of coffee up front before revealing complementary flavors of brown sugar, oats, and molasses. Hops are wholly of the earthy variety, offering a bite that melds nicely with the acrid bitterness of the coffee. The finish is especially enjoyable, as the various components reach the height of their synergy. Warming reveals some nutty aspects as well. Medium body and negligible carbonation yield a silky smooth mouthfeel, though a touch more substance would be nice for a bigger beer such as this. In spite of the low carbonation, a modest tingle manages to subsist on the tip of the tongue, while trace sugars linger on the lips.

Overall, this is a smooth, full-flavored brew that doesn’t rest on its coffee laurels. Normally I’d shy away from a beer with such a pronounced black coffee flavor, but the hefty dose of malt sweetness and appropriate hopping keep this one on the level. It’s also the best dark beer I’ve had from Tyranena.

Nice coffee notes. Good amount of roast. Better out of a stout glass- makes it thicker, hides some of the bite (might also just be the age)
