Very chocolatey and roasty. Caramel was present in the first few sips but then got lost by more prominent flavors. Still a good beer to pull from the conditioning spots for my birthday. Wonder how this would've tasted with BBA.

WTF!?! How does this taste like coffee? You can barely tell this is beer. Amazeballs galore.

At this point, I have no idea when it was bottled. See some folks posting 2017. I can't even remember how long this bottle has cellared at my house. Does not taste like RIS. All roasty notes are gone. Whiskey shoved it aside. This bottle got me drunk.

Bready and chewy...two descriptions I would not associate with porters. the combination of prune and raisin flavors had this tasting like a lager / barleywine catastrophe. Charlotte really likes pils and lager. Like Bud & Miller with new labels. Eww!
