    1st Taste: Creamy, sweet, dark chocolate

    Overall: Almost the dessert of the beer world. Really unique, while retaining the base characteristic of the Porter style, just not sure which of the versions. Maybe a little Baltic with some Lactose. It leans alittle to the heavy feel side, but not too far. Should absolutely add this to a food pairing menu as a late or final flight. Very original and good beer.

  • Poured clear with a half inch of brown, big bubbled foam that had frothiness around the edges. Retention was average as the foam became nothing more than a thin ring around the glass. Blotchy and thin lacing.

    Aroma is big on malt: caramel, roasted, and chocolate. The caramel sweetness stands out the most with subtleties of the roasted and chocolate balancing out. A nice spiced hop is there too.

    Taste has the caramel malt but is followed by a nice, pleasant mix of chocolate and roasted malt. The hops are not distinct but playing a nice supporting roll. A bit touch of chocolate in the finish

    A full body with creamy chocolate almost giving the sense of dessert. Medium carbonation.

    The chocolate and sweetness of the malt is probably more than expected than most porters. It seems they went out on a limb to make a little something different, and, seemingly succeeded in my mind. Enjoy!
