Pours a deep dark chocolate fudge color with a thick deep beige head that is quick to fade.Dark roast coffee and bitter chocolate really stand out in the nose.Dark roast coffee and some earth upfront on the palate with unsweetened chocolate and faint brown sugar round out a pretty dry flavor profile.The alcohol is pretty well hidden and the body is a little slick,pretty damn good.

One of my favorite porters, so glad it came back after so long. The pour is rich and dark, with a few fingers of creamy, mocha colored head. Big roasty aromas of burnt coffee and cocoa powder, which follows through to the taste,along woh biscuit malt and subtle dark fruit flavors. Smooth, rich, and full feel.

Dark black and viscous. Huge dark tan head that is frothy.

Smells like bakers chocolate and slightly smoky roasted barley. Very robust.l with some licorice bitterness.

It tastes like bitter chocolate and charred grains. I get a lot of licorice and some coffee grounds. Starting to taste like a RIS to me.

Very full, heavy, creamy body.

Let's not kid ourselves. This is a stout, if not an imperial one. Very good with an intense flavor and thick body. I scored it according to style one way and my enjoyment overall.
